While the Maori section of the museum in Okains Bay offered an interesting picture of Maori traditional craft and culture, the colonial section looked a bit like a junk shop, a ‘brocante’, with a nostalgic making mishmash of early 20th century objects brought along by the white settlers. The painted drum in the picture, with the old radio peeping from behind, did appeal to me though. The slanting landscape on its skin could well be inspired by one of the deep fjords on New Zealand’s South Island.
