The Maori portraits painted by Gottfried Lindauer occupy an invincible place in New Zealand's collective consciousness. We gasp when examples are stolen, and when they fetch stratospheric prices in the marketplace. But beyond their status as trophies of art, Lindauer's works are revered as priceless images of ancestors.

Join Roger Blackley from the Art History programme at Victoria University for a discussion of the complex bicultural patronage that brought these works into existence.
