ART FOR THE SOUL
FEATURING THE MAORI CREATION STORY IN SAND, WATCH A PIECE OF THE SHOW FOR FREE!!
THE MAORI CREATION STORY OF RANGINUI ( SKY FATHER) AND PAPATUANUKU ( EARTH MOTHER).
This is a beautiful Maori Tale of how the Heavens and the Earth were created, how Tane - seperated his parents, after living in darkness with his siblings and having to crawl between their parents. He helped bring life and light into the world, He clothed his mother with beautiful greenery and bird life - he became Tane-Mahuta the God of the Forests.
Tawhiri - Matea was not happy that Tane had seperated his parents and he stayed with his father in the Sky - He would blow down his fury from the heavens with perilous winds and storms!
One of the lessons we can learn from Tane - is the power of one to make a difference. Don't wait for others - you be the change take action and make things happen! Opportunities will happen when YOU move!
'Whiti Mai te Ra' - 'Let the Sun Shine through!'
(This was the first Sand Art Piece I created - being passionate about my culture, I love sharing the beautiful stories, wisdom, and knowledge of our maori people with the world.)
