Studio printed edition on Epson Velvet fine art paper with K3 archival inks printed and signed by contemporary NZ print-maker Lester Hall.

Bondage is Hall's statement about the way Pakeha and Maori are locked together because of the Treaty of Waitangi. Ake ake ake on the padlock translates as forever, forever, forever. This print combines a remix of Sydney Parkinson's Maori haka man with a Pakeha woman clad in bondage and discipline clothing. Hall's message is that Maori and Pakeha have to look into the other's thoughts to find common ground and faith, this is the bondage of colonisation.
