Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The last six years have been a remarkable journey of discovery for the Spirit Wrestler Gallery in Vancouver, Canada. Representing Maori art has been an awakening. Manawa coincides with the tenth anniversary of Spirit Wrestler Gallery. Manawa is not intended as a testament to the 'best in Maori art.' Manawa showcases Maori art through three-dimensional work, especially wood, which is a medium shared by both Northwest Coast and Maori artists, and therefore a natural transition for collectors new to Maori art. The final selection of Maori and Northwest Coast exhibiting artists included those who have developed relationships or forged friendships over many years with the gallery. The overall theme of the book contains beautiful objects carved, woven, blown and painted in many different media. The book contains an extensive introduction by Darcy Nicholas, a well-known and respected contemporary Maori painter, sculptor, writer and commentator on tikanga Maori. It has support from Creative New Zealand, toi ihoTM Maori made, Poutama Trust, Tourism NZ and Toi Maori Aotearoa.The authors dedicate this book to June Northcroft Grant in recognition of her vision, her encouragement and her support in Aotearoa in enabling their dream of publishing this book become a reality.
