Genavieve Tarawa Te Arawa Auckland Thankyou for these wonderful taonga.
Jo Chambers Noosa I have come across two Lindauer copies in Australia, framed in the US and have now got them on my wall. One is on this site which is brilliant but I would like to know if there are more that I can see anywhere else to check out the second of my two. Absolutely beautiful images, stunningly catalogued on this site. Thank you.
