Necklace Gold, Tapatoru I
This is our Tapatoru (triangle) necklace. The print on the pieces is our Tino Rangatiratanga pattern, which means:
Projects the power that is absolute sovereignty. This is encapsulated in the maunga design as being resolute and steadfast in its environment. The repetition of the design embedded in the tāniko framework is a reminder that our absolute sovereignty and determination is ours uniquely in many landscapes and forms.
