Ranginui and Papatuanuku Table
tanekaha, glass, hydrostone feet with waxed cord lashing, bone inserts

This table represents the legend of Ranginui and Papatuanuku, with the main body being Tane Mahuta, who is forcing his parents apart, his hands take root into the ground and his feet push against the heavens but only having tentative connection.
