Government House carved coats of arms

The collection of carved panels that feature in the Taupaepae, or main entrance hall, of Government House in Wellington are believed to be unique among Commonwealth Government Houses. The panels display the full “Armorial achievements” of the last Governor, Lord Islington (1910-12), who was the first resident in the House, and all subsequent Governors-General of New Zealand.
