Tangaroa Kaiwhangai Nui (Tangaroa Great Provider):

“In this piece, I pay homage to the great oceans of the world, the realm of Tangaroa, in this instance personified by the presence of the Marakihau (sea monster) and the great whirlpool, Korokoro o te Parata, from whence, it is told the massive ocean swells originate.”
