acrylic & water based oils on canvas
1040 x 785mm
This painting represents Matariki’s daughter, Tupu-a-nuku.
Kia marama koe ki a Matariki
Tataitia ra, tiwhaia i runga ra
Ko Te Ika-o- te-rangi
Ka nako i runga nei
Be ye clear as to Matariki
Arranged and dotted on high
The Milky Way pours out
and now adorns the firmament.
