Pania in conversation with Tangaroa - Michel Tuffery, hand painting on Recycled French Oak wine-barrel board.

Dimensions: 175 x 750 mm

One of New Zealand’s most well known artists, Michel is a renowned printmaker, painter & sculptor who has made a major contribution to art world-wide. You may know Michel for his life-size ‘Pisupo lua afe (corned beef)’ work, a cow constructed from attened corn beef tins which currently resides in Te Papa Museum. Michel’s work is shaped by his research into, and encounters with, his Polynesian heritage while making use of Māori design.

Crafted from recycled french oak wine-barrels, this board was design and made by The Paper Rain Project in Marlborough, New Zealand.

This board is a wall-hanging artwork and comes equipped with a fitting suitable for a standard picture hook or nail.

From each recycled winebarrel, we create 4 - 5 boards. For each board crafted, a native tree is planted. Thank you for helping us with native forest regeneration in NZ
