Whakapapa (Generations)

by


SOLD
This sculpture represents a man and woman united to maintain the continuations of whakapapa (genealogy)—their faces, on either side at the top, are highlighted in bone. Both figures are wearing cloaks honouring the traditional harakeke (flax) cloaks, though here they are decorated with a painted design.

Ngāti Paoa

(1967- )

Kerry has been carving for twenty-two years in many materials and is possibly the leading artist working in bone. Although he attended a diploma course in Māori design at Waiariki Polytechnic in Rotorua and learned from Hepi Maxwell, Rex Christianson and other artists working in the same materials, his style of carving and two-tone staining process are uniquely his own.
