PIONEER PETS   Kupe's dog,  Joseph Banks's greyhound and Captain Cook's goat.  Chuck Joseph 2013 "A set of three ceramic animals, all  visitors to Aotearoa during the earliest days of settlement; Kupe's dog, Joseph Banks's greyhound and Captain Cook's goat named Folly. These animals are  constucted  in the Staffordshire figurine style; clay figures which celebrate historical events. The group of three creates a ceramic monument, silent and curious witnesses to extraordinary explorations."       Chuck Joseph ©
