The Story of Sound of the Universe

The subject of 'Sound of the Universe' is an exaggerated representation of a pou (carved post) symbolizing Sofia's Ngati Porou ancestors' waka 'Horouta'. The pou stands in a line-up of ten poupou at the grounds at Te Tii Marae, Northland, and together they represent the great waka traditions linking Aotearoa with the Pacific. Sofia sees the pou as being our ancestors speaking to us with the consciousness of the next world.
