A scraper-board drawing of a Maori woman at Ruatahuna (Urewera Country) weaving a flax mat. The drawing was copied from a photograph in Augustus Hamilton's 'Maori Art' (1901). The weaving is stretched between two upright sticks and the woman works from left to right engaging the horizontal wefts with the vertical warps solely by use of the fingers. Maori weaving is not a true textile weaving and hence does not use any form of loom Mr. A. Hamilton
