Ipu 1 — Vessels of Knowledge



There have been many great New Zealand artists, Maori and Pakeha (European New Zealander), who have left their creative legacy and set the foundations of identifiably New Zealand / Aotearoa artistic traditions.

Whakamaharatanga (remembrance) is used in the idea of the vessel as an icon associating present creative endeavours with artists who have previously paved the way for us.
