Uncle Ladas’ First Wife’s Ring
First Class Honours Project
Massey University, Wellington

Uncle Ladas’ Third Wife’s ring is a publication exploring intergenerational connection and its role in creating family legacy through the documentation of my Great Great Half Uncle’s life. The intention is to highlight the value in archiving the ‘ordinary’ among us which can be achieved through storytelling and shared experience. The publication is designed to stand the test of time, protected from light and dust within a clamshell box.
