Maori & Pacific

The manufacture of tapa, barkcloth, is an ancient art which has been practised for thousands of years. Auckland Museum's collection of tapa cloth from around the Pacific is one of the most extensive in the world and forms the basis of this comprehensive survey. Pacific Tapa presents a complete range of the art, from cloth brought back from the first voyages by Europeans to the Pacific to contemporary examples.
