Where Can You Find This Carving?

Nov 09, 2018

This carving is from a pou in the Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt.

Commissioned in the 1980s, it was one of two carved by Rangi Hetet.

One pou tells the story of the tangata whenua welcoming people from afar who came to live in the Hutt Valley.

The other pou tells the story of carving and weaving and features a piece of taaniko (one of the oldest weaving techniques in Aotearoa New Zealand).
