EDITORS COMMENTS
This engraving from the 19th century takes us back to the Colonial and Indian Exhibition in New Zealand. The image showcases a vibrant display of wildlife, culture, and colonialism that was prevalent during this time period. In the foreground, we are introduced to a magnificent mountain parrot, known as kea, perched on a branch. Its colorful plumage adds an element of beauty to the scene. Nearby, we can spot tuatara and apteryx - unique creatures inhabiting New Zealand's diverse ecosystem. Moving towards the center of the print, our attention is drawn to a section dedicated to showcasing indigenous Maori culture. Here we see Maoris engaged in traditional activities and adorned with their distinctive attire. This glimpse into their way of life offers insight into their rich heritage. Further along, there is a display featuring colonial influences such as kauri pine trees and mutton birds - symbols of economic prosperity brought by European settlers. These elements represent the impact of colonization on New Zealand's natural resources. The exhibition also highlights curious attractions like burrowing vegetable sheep - an intriguing concept that captivated visitors' imaginations at the time. Overall, this engraving provides us with a snapshot of history when cultures collided at exhibitions like these. It serves as a reminder of how societies have evolved over time while shedding light on both positive advancements and complex legacies left behind by colonialism in New Zealand.
