The sacred stone of the Maoris, exhibition
From Tuesday, May 23 2017 to Sunday, October 1 2017
In the land of green gold.
Let's head to New Zealand, on the trail of jade, a sacred Maori stone. An object of fascination, the material of a delicate ancestral art, this stone remains intimately linked to the stories and legends of the Maori people.
New Zealand's green gold, jade (pounamu in the Maori language), is found in the rivers of Te Wai Pounamu. A noble material, a symbol of strength and an object of fascination, this prestigious stone, a sacred treasure, remains at the heart of many of the Maori people's beliefs, stories and legends.
The exhibition highlights the rich collections of jade from the Museum Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington. Almost two hundred rare taonga (treasures) sit alongside equally precious everyday objects.
