Nga Toki Mate Whenua
Between bad weather an coming down with another bug, just a quick post today from a recent visit to the Auckland Art Gallery.
Nga Toki Mate Whenua – Axes Felling Trees, Kill the Land
Tony Fomison (1939-1990)
“I became attracted to Maori culture because here was this culture produced in the country – an oral culture based on the love of the land, and love of the old and the young ones. In other words, a past, present and future.”
The Flintstones Mobile
Spotted in a playground, this wagon will either be very familiar, or not familiar at all to some of you out there. A creative remake of Fred Flintstones car, brought back childhood memories for me. To be fair, I was not around for the original 1960’s screenings of this pre Simpsons family, but TV here in NZ re-ran everything for many, many years. I expect it is still on one channel somewhere here.
