This colorful art is part of a Maori Meeting House found in the Te Papa Museum in Wellington, North Island, New Zealand. The images tell stories from the Maori culture, preserving them in time. (can you spot the open end wrenches?)

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
