Te Waka - Waiotahe




This painting was inspired by the journey Maori had on their voyage from Hawaiiki to Aotearoa (New Zealand) this is a piece that celebrates the common association that people have made over the years with the word Aotearoa which in translation means “the land of the long white cloud” depicted in the clouds in the sky.

Te Mete has articulately created this magical piece of Maori arriving in Aotearoa over 2000 years ago. This Artwork is based on Waiotahe Beach located near Opotiki, in the Whakatohea rohe. The Raukumara Hills sit in the background situated in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.

The painterly style of this artwork encompasses a new world tone to enrich and enhance the wonder of arriving to a new land.
