Taenga – Arrival

posted in: Contemporary, Koru, Roimata | 0

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 pounamu represents the arriving to a place or an idea, and then the subsequent unfurling of what that arrival turns into, a new beginning.

“As we wind our way down to our bach, far from town, five seagulls appear to announce that we’re here.” (Page 6/7)
