The Landing

The Landing





This painting was funded by Creative New Zealand. The Landing 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”

Te Mete has articulately created a mystical scene upon “the arrival” of Maori in Aotearoa over 2000 years ago. This Artwork is depicted in the land of Whakatohea with the arrival of the Mataatua Waka with the Raukumara Hills in the background situated on the Eastern Bay of Plenty.

The painterly style of this artwork encompasses a new world tone using the royal colour purple which is subtly used to enrich and enhance the wonder of arriving to a new land.
