This work is part of the 'because you're magic' exhibition (8 June - 1 July, 2023) by Rongomaiaia Te Whaiti of Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa (Ngāti Hikawera, Ngāti Hinewaka) and Ngāi Tahu descent.


Drawing inspiration from the painted doors of Taharora, Because you’re magic emerges as a series of paintings portraying symbols of rangatiratanga, critical to our individual and collective existence both then and now. Through this series, the spirit of our unique culture are brought to life, bridging the past and present in a celebration of who we are… proud to be Māori.
