Wahi Tapu (Sacred Place) 06.02.2009 by Duane Moyle. This work is inspired by my attendance of the Mauao dawn service on Waitangi day 2009. People from all cultural backgrounds gathered to climb Mauao, perform haka, sing songs, offer karakia and speak of hopes for the future. There was a strong sense of unity and diversity, with all who attended joined by a sense of sacred connection to our Mauao.

The tukutuku structure is one I have created that incorporates the typical architectural features of a church (white crosses) and a wharenui (red crosses). These places have been a vital community meeting place for New Zealanders for generations.
