Anahera

Original painting by Sofia Minson

Oil on canvas. 920 x 610mm.

'Anahera' means 'angel' in Maori. The carved spiral object in this work has the form of a manaia, which is an ancient mythical being seen in traditional Maori carving with a bird's head and a serpent's tail. They are said to be the messengers between the earthly world of mortals and the domain of spirits and Sofia's interpretation of this is that in essence, manaia are angels. The three birds are New Zealand's primordial giant Pouakai Eagles.
