The story of Dawn of Aotearoa

This work presents the dawn of our natural realm through Maori creationary mythology. Legend has it that before our world existed, Ranginui (Sky Father) and Papatuanuku (Earth Mother) clung together in a close embrace and were eventually pushed apart by their divine sons. Our world, represented by this surreal landscape, emerged and it was able to sustain life - plants, animals and ultimately humans. Papatuanuku's nude form lies within the river stones that bathe in the caressing glow of Ranginui.
