This print is a cross pollination between the Greek mythology Pleiades and Matariki. Cultures around the world have similar beliefs relating to the constellation, such as the stars representing either women or animals. I used the dove concept the Greeks believed in and replaced it with a bird native to New Zealand. Each Tui relates to the story of Matariki’s children and what they represent.
