This morning I discovered the Maori concept of Hauora - which translates to a balance of health across four sectors: spiritual, mental, physical, and social.

I got to thinking which section does collecting art fit best under - social, mental, or spiritual?

And is this dliemma partly responsible for Maori not having the concept of Art as such before Pakeha arrival and subsequent commodification?
