Uru (Brett Graham, 2013)

One of the pieces at Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery’s inaugural exhibition is Brett Graham’s “Uru”, hand carved from beech wood (courtesy of Shirley and Russell Hodgson and Two Rooms, Auckland).

The exhibition note says:

In this carved wall relief, Brett Graham (Ngati Koroki Kahukura) draws upon the many connotations ‘uru’ evokes in the Maori world.
