New to our website and store are the Wāhine prints!
This print depicts Hiwa i te rangi.
Hiwa i te rangi
“The word ‘hiwa’ means ‘vigorous of growth’, and it is to Hiwa that Māori would send their dreams and desires for the year in hope that they would be realised”
Rangi Matamua, Matariki The Star of the Year.
The image of the wāhine (woman) is our interpretation of Hiwa, drawn within a taimana (diamond) which again is in reference to a star. The tukutuku patterns on the border of this frame are in lots of nine (matariki reference), we have included the actual constellation in her night hair and her moko kauae (chin) shows the connection between the stars and us here on the whenua (land).
