      His career changes were interspersed with periods when Ray worked full time on his art. I was given this book free of charge by the publishers in return for an honest review. Pounamu is a New Zealand icon. When polished it is smooth to the touch and of great beauty, giving it an intrinsic value as an adornment and a medium for worship. The injustice is plain: it seems the New Zealand Government of the time had a lot in common with the biblical Laban.

      I especially liked the sensitive way the novel brings out the Maori culture and the injustices of the time—a combination of greed and perhaps patriarchal thinking. She is full of hard won wisdom. And it warms your body because jade retains heat very well. The semi-precious stone, known by the Maori as Pounamu, holds great meaning in their culture. The tools were also use to shape fishhooks and other items made from whalebone.

      It was home after being away so long. And he has been recognised and awarded in each of these fields; indeed one of his jade pieces is shown in Russell J. And I will admit they were right. Ray preferred lamp working techniques. Consumed by desire, he snatched Waitaki up, claimed her as his wife and fled to the South Island. He also helps trusts that own blocks of Maori freehold land, and outside of work is a director of the limited company that manages the finances of the Puketeraki Karitane marae.
