1978 mages of a domestic garden, in Clevedon, which was full of carvings by George Brown / Ihaka Paraone.

They stand in an unfamiliar relationship to the received assumptions about the carving 'traditions' and the carving histories as they have been presented to the NZ public thus far.

The photographer says: “Looking at George's garden with its Arawa whakapapa of carved stories, including the migration tradition, I saw Pakeha me standing there looking at and PAST those works to their context. An isolated farm house on a dairy farm where George lived alone, his family having moved into town.”
