This image was used in an article by Chris Mousdale entitled "digging for gold", about record cover design as a window on New Zealand culture.
Description Front cover; image and text. The front cover shows the artists - Inia Te Wiata and the Maori Chorus of the New Zealand Opera Company in a posed photograph. The image shows a classic Maori cultural group. They wear traditional Maori costume including both bone and greenstone Tiki, piupiu (the skirts), bodices and headbands. Inia Te Wiata is in the right foreground and wears a traditional woven flax cloak, and a carved bone tiki. The typography uses two typefaces - one cursive serif white and one in yellow and blue upper case serif. [KY]
Description Back cover; text only. The back cover has information about the group, descriptions of the song contents, and song titles. The song titles are in upper case serif type. [KY]
