FACES of THE PAST - The Dignity of Maori Age.

NZ Published 1971

KRISTIN ZAMBUCKA'S Portraits of a fast - vanishing generation of Maori Women.
In this book we see Kuia ( grand-mothers ) some who have lived to 107, 114, and to 122 years of age, nourished by simple food, leading simple, hardworking lives.
Some have passed away in the short time since she painted them.

FULL PAGE Portrait Illustrations in EXCELLENT CONDITION, & a separate page with a personal story of each of her subjects. (names below)
Miss Zambucka's notes on her subjects are fascinating reading.

Where Lindauer and Goldie specialise in painting old men ( koroua ) she saw the kuia as equally deserving.

The kuia have special status in Maori society even today.

She covers WOMEN FROM MANY TRIBES.
