Hine te Po - Goddess of the night

Hine te Po - Goddess of the night


Handwoven Laser Woodcut by Vanessa Wairata Edwards

100cm h x 70cm w

These works are a direct homage to Te Pō as the space in which Ranginui and Papatuanuku combined in a tight embrace.  Their union created life and their separation created Te Ao Marama – the world of light that we reside in today.

The collaged images and woven aspect reflect female energies within Te Po.  By creating these images I reflect on my connection to the female tupuna who have gone before me and their ability to innovate, to evolve the norm, to refine tikanaga and to challenge the injustices that we endure through action.
