The story of Awaken

In our modern digitized world many people are craving a feeling of aliveness that they realize is missing. I see the carved figure in this painting, known as a 'manaia' in Maori culture, as being a wise old highly conscious being, prompting us to be bold and live our lives with great presence and vigour. The symbol of the manaia reaches through our vulnerabilities to discover the true gift of who we are, from deep within. Manaia are traditionally seen in 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.
