Painting by Darcy Nicholas called Children of Ranginui

Darcy Nicholas

Tane, Tawhiri, Tu, Tangaroa and Ruaumoko are all personifications of human form and part of
the natural phenomenon of the earth and sky. I have added Hinerangi. Our ancestors had many more as a means of understanding and retaining the knowledge of the constant changes in the natural world.
