Jade Arts, 1973. Theo Schoon came to New Zealand where he lived for some thirty years; here his diverse background and widespread interests led him to Maori art as a field of study. Through his passionate interest and understanding and his deep insight into Maori art, much has been done for New Zealand in reviving aspects of this neglected cultural past. He played a major role in the recording of the art forms of the early Maori, locating and photographing ancient rock drawings previously unknown. His 105 colour plates and six pages of drawings show the wide range of his study, observation and experience in this fascinating story of jade.
