The sig­na­tures that shaped New Zealand are now on dis­play in one place. Te Tir­iti o Wai­tangi (1840), the 1835 Dec­la­ra­tion of In­de­pen­dence of the United Tribes of New Zealand and the Women’s Suf­frage pe­ti­tion of 1893 glow in tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled cases in a dark­ened doc­u­ment room. In­spired by waka huia boxes, Bernard Makoare carved storm­felled rimu from Kahu­rangi Na­tional Park to cre­ate it. Closed Sun­days. Na­tional Li­brary of New Zealand, Cnr Molesworth & Aitken Sts, Thorn­don, 0800 474 300, het­ohu.nz
