    From Hall's "Aotearoaland" series Poll Tax refers to the discriminatory tax levied on immigrants from China in the early days of New Zealand settlement. The portrait of a young Chinese woman wearing a tiki is a riff on the famous painting Chinese Girl in a Yellow Jacket by Vladimir Tretchikoff.  The artist has taken all of this series off the market for good now, we have just one left.
