This artwork speaks to the vision for an enlightened future where the richness of our past leads the way toward harmony and peace.

Rangi, better known as Ranginui, married Papatuanuku (the Earth Mother). They were locked in an eternal embrace and it was only their separation which allowed their children to flourish in Te Ao Marama - the world of light, which now exists between them. Today, as we strive for enlightenment, we remember our connections to the past and the intangible links which bind us and encourage us to strive for a better future
