The article above is from the Golden Bay Weekly, May 2nd 2014.
The webpage above is from the website of the Environmental Protection Agency. Unfortunately the weaver who created the flax whāriki / mat for the (huge and wonderful!) kohatu pounamu / greenstone rock, is not named on the page :-(
But in fact it was made by yours truely, Maureen Harte of Wild Sands Weaving.
You can visit the webpage online here. And another related page, including a slideshow of photos of the presentation of the pounamu (and the woven whāriki / mat!) here.
