Souvenir Surprises

Christchurch. March 2009. Ajr
I photographed this replica Maori korowai (cloak) in a Christchurch souvenir shop when I was walking around the city last week. For some reason, I still find the sight of a Maori cloak in a souvenir shop window jarring and out of place somehow. I hesitate to use the words 'culturally inappropriate' for it may not be, but it does feel that way to me.
