Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

WEAVING EARTH AND SKY: MYTHS & LEGENDS OF AOTEAROA retells the classic Maori myths and legends, which range from creation to Maui to Kupe's arrival in Aotearoa. Robert Sullivan has rewritten them in a very modern, direct, accessible and powerful way. Gavin Bishop's strong graphic technique and stunning colours help the reader visualise the world of gods, demi-gods and mythic adventure. Together, they have turned stories that many readers know well into dramatic pieces that we see and hear afresh.
