The exhibition Huia tells the story of this taonga or treasure through the eyes of both science and an artistic imagination. Studies of rare museum skins faithfully represented, the tragedy of their loss to the dawn chorus told from the perspective of a surrealist mind and reconstructions of how they would have appeared in reality are accurate and detailed accounts of this lost species.
