Te Ara Wairua
Project info

My work as an artist follows the ancient spiritual traditions of my people, taught to me by various tohunga (traditional healers), and the subject matter bases itself upon the unique world view of the Māori people.
This submission is an exploration of the Ara Wairua, the path taken by the deceased, who are said to travel to the northernmost point of Aotearoa/ New Zealand, Te Rerenga Wairua, on the journey to the afterlife.
