Story Behind This Mural

Seth’s mural cleverly puts a spotlight on human impact affecting marine life such as megafauna like whales. With the child riding the whale’s snout, the artwork portrays how future generations may lose what we have if we continue to destructively impact oceans and marine life that are vital to our survival on land. The mural also pays homage to the New Zealand Māori story of Paikea, a whale rider, the ancestor to Ngāi Tahu and Ngāti Porou iwi (tribes).
