Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

A Māori prayer for the land, sea and people of Napier to further strengthen our connection to earth and all that inhabit it. Like the jeweled net of Indra, this Mantradala reminds us that all life is interconnected and interdependent. Toitū te Marae o Tane-Mahuta, (If the land is well,) Toitū te Marae o Tangaroa, (and the sea is well,) Toitū te Tangata, (the people with thrive.)
