Ōnawe Peninsula

This is a pounamu that is part of a larger set. The set was made for a childrens book that my wife created. There is one pounamu for each page of the book. The main page for this is called Sand in my toes salt in my nose and you can see all the artwork and pounamu there. The book is available for purchase at rosalindpotter.com, along with prints of the art, all done by our good friend Ginney Deavoll.

This is a birds eye view of Ōnawe Peninsula in Akaroa Harbour. This is a very distinctive feature of the harbour, you cannot miss it when you are looking down from up on the hills. This represents connection with this place.

“Up to the top, to the view that won’t stop. Hills folding to sea, the day beckons me.” (Page 4/5)
