AOTEAROA - The Land of the Long Abiding Light
This portfolio contains all 49 Terragraphics of the Ekkeland Götze Aotearoa Project. These were printed by the artist in a makeshift printing shop which he set up in the Bay of Islands. At the end of the project the workshop was then dissolved. The portfolio contains the three work sections
TE ARA POUNAMU, KOKOWAI and RUAUMOKO, their accompanying texts, soil samples lists along with single pages.
