Maori Meeting House - 2d
Upon arrival in New Zealand the Maori found they needed warmth and protection from the wind and rain, unlike the tropical islands from which they had come. They developed the style of large, rectangular meeting houses made from wooden planks with thatched, gabled roofs and doors recessed behind deep verandas. Their living quarters or 'whare' were built in a similar but smaller style, the houses reflecting their communal living style. The functions of cooking and food storage were kept separate from the 'whare'. Tree-fern on left, cabbage palm to right. I have a range of images available. Stamps issued before 1936 may be reproduced, however those after are subject to copy-write. Postmarks and variations in stamp issue colours add to the unique nature of the historic and one off piece.
