Information is given on how to read and understand a carving, looking in depth at parts of carvings and what to look for in elements such as the head, arms and hands of figures and the surface patterns used. The patterns and body styles are described and accompanied by detailed photographs that make identification of the elements easy. This is part of a series of four books on aspects of Maori culture. The others are: Geothermal Treasures: Maori Living with Heat and Steam; Maori Weaving: The Art of Creating Maori Textiles; and Marae: The Heart of Maori Culture"--Publisher information.
