Each is uniquely painted but each is also numbered and so these are paint-prints.

The play between languages is not just between the the New Zealand Māori and English texts but between the language of abstract expressionism vs the conceptual, in miniature. Some may read them as texts for contemplation while others might read them as provocative. They are durable to be passed from hand to hand and to withstand the tests of diverse social environments.
