Description: NEW ZEALAND: original drawing on a postcard of a female mokomokai by HG Robley & initialled "GR", unused. Unique & culturally important. [Robley became an avid student of Maori culture & acquired the extraordinary number of 35 mokomokai (the heads of heavily tatooed Maori - moko - that were severed after death & treated for preservation). Also a drawing of a Tiki & other artefacts on a postcard, probably by Robley but not initialled or signed. Robley's larger studies are worth thousands of dollars] (2)
