The Maoris Home, 1912

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a captivating print that transports us to the heart of New Zealand's indigenous culture. Captured by artist Charles Robinson, this image showcases a wharenui, a traditional communal house of the Maori people. The vibrant colors and intricate details bring to life the rich heritage and deep connection these native communities have with their land. In this snapshot of early 20th-century Aotearoa (New Zealand), we see men, women, and children gathered outside the wharenui. Their faces reflect a sense of pride and unity as they stand together in front of their sacred dwelling. An old man stands tall at the forefront, his weathered face telling stories of generations past. The print not only captures the physical beauty of this architectural marvel but also symbolizes the importance placed on community and shared living among Maori society. It serves as a reminder that despite being part of Britain's vast empire during that time period, these local people maintained their distinct cultural identity. This remarkable piece was featured in Alice Talwin Morris' book "More About The Empire" published by Blackie and Son Limited in London, Glasgow, and Bombay in 1912. As we gaze upon this photograph today through The Print Collector's lens, we are transported back to an era where tradition met modernity within New Zealand's diverse landscape.
