Stretched canvas approx. size 130 x 80 cm

Acrylic, Kokowai.

The old name of Golden Bay is Mohua. It is also the name of the manu that has become attached to many of the whanau living there. Below the manu represented here is the whenua (land) with the cloak of Papatuanuku covering it. A grid form has been used to reference the ‘mapping’ of the land. Above is the maunga Parapara and above that on the picture plane is the curve of Golden Bay. From above the tears of Rangi ((the sky) fall in the separation of the two parents. It is in this space between Papatuanuku and Ranginui (the primal parents) that the light of Te Ao Marama (of this world) shines.
