Te Pitau A Tiki # 1
2009 See full details
This work has been machine carved in untreated plywood. Ngatai has left the work untreated to allow the work to age naturally. While there is no concern for change in condition from an archival perspective, he does anticipate that the works will have very minor changes in colour. He relates these changes to the aging of the subject of the works – his son, Maungapohatu.
As well as continuing an art practice Ngatai Taepa is the Director of Māori Arts, Massey University, Palmerston North.
