The State Services Commission, the body employing the country's top public servants, has commissioned a number of major Māori carvings for its offices in Wellington's Molesworth Street. This photo shows a lintel and doorframe for the entrance to the building's boardroom and meeting rooms, carved by Rangi Hetet of Ngāti Maniapoto. Artworks of this kind indicate a growing commitment to biculturalism within New Zealand's state sector.
