To celebrate Maori Language 2017, Te Papa asked The League of Live Illustrators to create images celebrating Maori legend.
It’s like watching those FB videos of amazing illustrators, except live and in real time.
You walk by in the morning and an artist is beginning to sketch a mysterious something on the window. Walk by later and that something is a beautiful octopus and then there’s a fish and a marae. You purposely walk by a few more times during the day and watch the image become more colourful, more animated. Soon you realize that a story has unfolded.
Definitely a fun way to commemorate Te Wiki o Te Reo this year.
