Ko Hikurangi Te Maunga

Original painting Sold, oil on canvas, 1000 x 1200mm, 2006

"Ko Hikurangi te Maunga" was motivated by Sofia's respect for her Maori heritage. The surreal landscape celebrates an ancient maori proverb used by her iwi/tribe - Ngati Porou. They are words of identity, which confirm a sacred connection to the land and people of Sofia's tipuna/ancestors:

Ko Hikurangi te maunga
Ko Waiapu te awa
Ko Ngati Porou te iwi

Hikurangi is the mountain
Waiapu is the river
Ngati Porou is the tribe
