In the 1950s, Rita Angus made several watercolours that, she said, ‘followed’ the goddess paintings. Like the goddess images, there are two portraits of children that reflect Angus’s ideal of a peaceful, multicultural future.
This portrait of the Indian girl is luminous, and a young Māori boy is depicted with a glowing aura.
