Jewellery is never worn on its own; it is used to enhance the beauty or aesthetics of the wearer. This exhibition is for small-but-perfectly-formed taonga whakarākei. A celebration of Māori jewellery, this show will shed light on kaupapa Māori and contemporary approaches to creating tāhei (neck ornaments), whakakai (earrings) or heru (hair combs). Featuring whakairo (carving) as well as raranga (weaving), this exhibition is an enchanting reminder to dress well.
