Alternative text for image: The visitors of an audio described tour at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki stand at the entrance to a Gallery space. Wearing white conservation gloves, attendees gently touch the wooden wall panels that surround them – this is an artwork called Te Taumata by the artist Lonnie Hutchinson. The artwork is based on kōwhaiwhai patterns and elements from nature to reflect an upward journey from the ground to the canopy of the building. The design is cut into a light American oak wood and envelopes the doorway to the exhibition. Photo credit: Nicola Owen
