"Ngā Kaitiaki o te Rangi (Gardeners of the skies) was a comission for the Macleans College Staffroom (my old school) depicting the peninsula area local to the school known to Manawhenua (Ngai Tai) as as Te Waiarohia. The background is symbolic of my Pepeha (see above), depicting Rangitoto Island nestled in the Waitemata harbour. 2 Kererū snack on Karaka berries in an untouched landscape - the only native bird large enough to carry seeds from our large native trees. There are 6 different native plants/trees present in this image, reflecting knowledge of Te Waonui o Tāne (The World of Tāne) acquired through studying Rongoā Māori (Traditional Māori Medicine) through www.titokieducation.co.nz with Pa Ropata & Donna Kerridge."
