This is an entry level work for the Pakeha thinking about the complex nature of looking into race relations and conceptualizing in NZ. The artwork is an entertaining way to ask what the word Wahine means in New Zealand today. Are white women Wahine? Do Pakeha think Maori women are wahine or Maori women? Do Maori think of Pakeha women as wahine or Pakeha women. It is a question about language and titles and how the bilingual nature of NZ is starting to work. The setting for this question is a 1898 stamp of Milford Sound with a Phantom character embedded in the style with a pulp style heroine resigned to her fate.
