A lively celebration of the iconic kiwi gold - Honey! Travel back with me to the 40 and 50s, and celebrate the heaven-sent knockouts of the period, whose images were made for slapdash display, flaunted on calendars and held pride-of-place on the wall of the mechanic's workshop. I've painted this collection of lovely ladies combining their alluring curves with some of the things we hold dear. The result is a sexy blend of nostalgia and of the most enduring combination of all - sex and selling.
Evidently us kiwi's weren't that keen on tucking into this sweet sticky delight because it's packaging wasn't all that appealing. The two honey companies at the time invested in educating us by setting up tasting stands in shops, giving talks in schools and writing cook books. Now we consume more honey per head, 1.62kgs each year, than any other nation.
