Warren Pohatu Art

We created these art works after looking at and discussing the work of Warren Pohatu.  It was with great sadness we learned of Warren's death on April 25th before we had completed the work.  Warren had a connection to Summerland through his extended family and we were firtunate to have him visit us in 2010. He donated one of his prints which we hang proudly in reception.
