            "The practice of t moko, and the wearing of moko, was considered an art form of a bygone day for the most part of the twentieth century, as casualty of Aotearoa New Zealand's colonial past. However, this unique Pacific art is enjoying a revival. Its embers fanned back to life by ...modern practitioners in the 1980s, it has once again become a powerful form of Mori cultural expression, identity and unity. In a first for Australia, 'Mori markings: t moko' looks at not only the history of this living, breathing art of our region but also shares stories of today's proud moko wearers and practitioners"--Foreword.

            Ellis described the fungi: Growing, they look like dolls dressed up in fluted lace petticoats ... Some are apple green, others mauve; one is black, and another has a scarlet cap. They stand high on long white stems, and the fungus closely resembles exquisite lace. In her 70s, art...ist and naturalist Ellis Rowan spent day after day painting birds, plants and flowers in the tropics of Papua New Guinea. After a young local boy brought her a beautiful toadstool one day-then another, and another-she painted no less than 72 images of various species of fungi, many of which were unknown to Australian botanists at the time. Scattered throughout Christine Morton-Evans' new illustrated biography of the artist, Ellis Rowan's own words offer an expressive and often amusing insight into the way Rowan saw the world. Portraying herself as an 'intrepid lady explorer', she not only adventured into wild and inaccessible places in search of new wildflowers and wildlife, she also wrote of these expeditions in vivid accounts for her family, and later for print in newspapers. A first-generation Australian, driven by the pioneering spirit of her parents, Rowan decided early that she would search out, collect and paint an entire collection of wild Australian flora. From the late 1870s, she exhibited works at international exhibitions, winning dozens of medals and receiving the highest honours at the 1888 Centennial International Exhibition in Melbourne. In 1895, Rowan met Queen Victoria, who purchased three of Rowan's paintings, which she intended to have made into a fire-screen. It was but a small part of her success. Her life's work made an important contribution to knowledge of our country's flora and fauna. From her early life in Melbourne, through schooldays, marriage and children, to the tropical north of Australia, England and Papua New Guinea, Rowan was known for her independent, strong character. She enjoyed her own company, content to flout the conventions of the period in pursuit
