Paikea coloring book

Funny thing, I was asked to do a drawing of Paikea, a Maori legend and ancient ancestor. This was for an interactive table that is a part of the museum's whale exhibit. Eventually this drawing was blown up and used as a coloring page for kids. The statue that this is based on has it's own interesting story in how it came to the museum, but I won't get into that. Strange coincidence, though, that when I was doing photography for the museum a few years back, I had met Paikea before as I took his picture.
