New Zealand - Old Barns & Woolsheds


Adriennegarry sent me this PC of old barns and woolsheds of New Zealand. :) I take many photos of rustic barns here in Skagit Valley.  New Zealand had a Wool Boom in 1951, making it one of the greatest economic booms in the history of New Zealand, and the direct result of US policy in the 1950–53 Korean War.  

The Matariki stamp. Released June 24th 2009 is the second in its annual Matariki stamp series, honoring the Hei-tiki as an icon of Maori art. The Hei-tiki  is an ornamental neck pendant of the Maori. Hei-tiki are usually made of greenstone and worn around the neck. They are often referred to as tiki, a term that actually refers to large human figures carved in wood, and, also, the small wooden carvings used to mark sacred places.
