This is the definitive reference on Maori body art. H. G. Robley first encountered the Maori art form during his military service in New Zealand; thirty years later he published this classic ethnography. This 1896 work not only summarizes all previous accounts of Maori tattooing but also augments them with Robley's personal observations from his three decades of observation and study among the craft's practitioners. Includes bibliography and 180 black and white illustrations and line drawings.
