Michael Parekowhai – Story of a New Zealand River





This work is very striking.  The artist has started with a Steinway grand piano and then added panels of carving.  The piano works.

This is one of 6 piano sculptures he has done.  It is an intriguing blend of European and Maori culture.  This sculpture also is a nod to the film, The Piano (which was directed by Jane Campion, a New Zealander)
