Crowns Thrones

Crown of Thorns by Amorangi Hikuroa
350mmh x 350mmw

Artwork description:

This piece represents the Crown's firm anchorage in a world not prepared for what has to come, a race for control of the Pacific with the kupu (text) indicating the true form of this power.

Like all colonised lands it all starts at the first drop of blood, which comes from the first strike of illist greeting.

Cradelled in a nest of barbed intent, enveloped by darkness and blood sits a firm grasp of new claim to a world inocent of the peril and hardship of an empire unsatisfied.

The kupu is a mix of log book enteries made by cook an joe banks and screaming thoughts.
