He kura tangata e kore a rokohanga, he kura whenuake rokohanga (People die, are killed, migrate, disappear: not so the land, whichremains forever) The whenua wraps and holds nga tangata. Each an individual. Each an adornment. This work explores how we as individuals connect toour surroundings,how we interact with each other and how we can come together to be embraced by our whenua.
