Pic[edit]

User:tenakoutou said: "This is not a traditional picture but a contemporary piece of art." In fact it isnt a contemporary piece of art at all, as the commons description shows, but a drawing of six actual traditional real pieces of carved representations of the gods. It is traditional in that all the items are genuine. Kahuroa 05:22, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Clearly this image is mis-representative. It is a "drawing". The drawing does not in any way resemble imagery known from so-called "Maori Mythology".--Te Irirangi (talk) 06:23, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

This article should be called "Biggs on Māori mythology." I think the two paragraphs under "Tradition" should be removed as violating Biggs' copyright. That section will need to be rewritten, too. Questions? Comments? Rissa, Guild of Copy Editors (talk) 02:44, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
