Material: Canvas print
Frame: Gallery wrapped over timber frame
“Para te hau, para te ooue, para te rahurahu”- a pathway cannot be found easily without clearing a track through the undergrowth.
The ear of Haumietiketike (mushroom) dominates the undergrowth deep within ‘Te Puke a Taane’.
Rongo made peace and departed, leaving the floor of the forest for the wide-open space.
Haumietiketike cannot leave the canopy. Hau requires the shades and the
ongaonga to protect and shield from Te Hokowhitu a Tuu. So, when Te Hokowhitu a Tuu go into the canopy, strategy is needed to constantly gain control.
Wall mount instructions:
Wall mounting is easy and only requires 2 flat head screws.
Decide on the placement of your canvas then set the screws where you want the top of the canvas to be positioned at least 100mm in from each side of the canvas.
Leave 3mm - 5mm of each screw protruding out from the wall surface.
The timber frame has grooves designed to hook over the flat head screws.
