Upa – To be Satisfied

posted in: Porohita | 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 piece represents that feeling of a job well done, when you feel complete and whole and the entire universe is working in your favor. This symbolises the times when you feel whole and things are working well for you.

“And when we’re all done, worn out from the fun, it’s about time, I think, to curl up with a drink.” (Page 28/29)
