Tui's latest show with us - 'Kōura Kōura Kōura'

We call ‘spiny lobsters’ crayfish, kōura too. They are delicious. They are valuable. Tui doesn’t know how to catch them. They have 10 legs, they are not represented accurately here. This is a collection of merchandise. Sell merch to make art, sell art to buy time to learn how to catch kōura. Kōura is also a loaned noun meaning gold. Gold is valuable too.
