18 – Bringing Art to the Surface

We discuss the mythical origins of carving along with the two main styles and finish with a short talk about tokotoko, orator’s staffs! Oh, and there is a giveaway too!

If you want to enter the giveaway for the three beanies and three caps you just need to send me an email (you can use the contact form under “Contact” on the menu to the right) with the below details:

– Your name
– The hemisphere (north or south) that you live in
– Something you liked, learned or a suggestion for the podcast
Plus one of the following:
– A screenshot of a review you made for HANZ
– A picture of where you are listening to the podcast

Once you send those to me, you will be entered in and I will draw the winners after the giveaway closes at 5pm NZST on 24/08/19. Winners will be drawn at random with the three caps only available to those that live in the northern hemisphere and the three beanies only available to those in the Southern Hemisphere.

What a HANZ cap looks like!
