Chartwell Notes

This work is Te Pakanga XV

Te Pakanga by Paratene Matchitt, is a series of drawings completed in 1974. The drawings were commissioned by School Publications in Wellington as illustrations for a book called Te Atea (The New World) published in 1975. Te Atea, by Katerina Mataira, was written in Maori for a Maori audience. The book and the Matchitt illustrations are about the perils of war and the path to restoration.
