E. W. Payton, C. P. Parkerson and George Isles were the most known to photograph her.

Can't say that I was familiar with Makereti Papakura before today. Thanks for bumping the thread.

This is a great topic. Thanks for bumping it up. I also enjoyed Epi Shalfoon & His Melody Boys- 1930. Who would of seen the connection between Trad. Jazz and Maori culture?

One of the interesting things to me about Maori tiki carvings are the 2 distinct styles.
The "Teko-teko" style is distinctly humanoid, with patterns carved like their tattoos.
The "Hei Tiki" style, with their square-ish heads tilted to the side, have a definite "ET" look to them.

On location for a film about 10 years ago, I visited Rotorua.
Here's a few more shots from that trip.




I found this old postcard:


Here's the same carving at the Maori Arts & Crafts center

Thanks rixzantis for posting those pictures, I was there about 10 years ago too...Rotorua is amazing. I also had the privilege of touring the University of Auckland Museum...a simply breath-taking collection of fabrics, weapons, Tikis, architectural structures, carvings and so much more.

This is a fabulous thread, the ephemera is great!!!
