Many stories are told and problems solved over a cup of tea! Angie's paintings for 2016 were inspired from moments in history. Angie believes pictures speak louder than words, so she invites you to ponder over the images and she hopes they initiate some conversation and perhaps even your own historical stories.
“Keep your pants on” The blue cup with Akaroa lighthouse represents the French explorer (Jean-François Langlois). In 1838 he paid a deposit for Akaroa to the Maoris which included, 2 cloaks, 6 pairs of trousers, 12 hats, 2 pairs of shoes, some pistols, axes and 2 shirts. He headed back to France to gather a group to assist him in developing Akaroa as a French colony. Unfortunately by the time he returned to New Zealand, the Maori’s had signed the Treaty of Waitangi with the British and a British flag was at Akaroa on their return. Fortunately due to some amicable negotiations between the French and the British, Langlois was still able to settle in Akaroa as planned. (http://history-nz.org/index.html).
