Artist's Description

The ecocentric world view of the Maori is encapsulated in this artwork.
Look closer and the kiwi, weta, tuatara and other animals become apparent, woven in the body of Papatuanuku. This cryptic portrayal of the many endemic species of Aotearoa illustrates their current demise, many of which are no longer found on the mainland.

“Toitu te whenua, whatu ngarongaro te tangata”
“Man will eventually perish, but the land shall remain”
