Ta Moko: the Art of Maori Tattoo

Author(s): David Simmons

Maori History, Society and Culture | Secondhand | NZ Art & Artists

The art of Maori tattoo has always been regarded with fascination. In this lavishly illustrated study of male and female moko, the authors draws on the records, journals and sketches of early European observers in New Zealand - explorers such as Cook, de Surville, du Fresne and later traders and missionaries. he relies too on visual sources, including the works of such artists as Earle, Angus, Robley, Lindauer and Goldie, to document the increasing standardisation, the decline and disappearance of male moko in the nineteenth century, a trend paralleled by the development of the female moko.
