The Matau a Maui, landscape + nature
"Te Matau a Maui" means "The Fishhook of Maui". The work was based on the ancient tales of the Maui, recounted by Sofia's own Ngati Porou ici people from the North Island's eastern part. The demigod Maui came from Hawaiiki, the Maori's home.
The legend says that Maui and his brethren fished far out into the sea a long time ago. Lacking other lures, Maui greased his own magical hook with his own bloody water and let it fall over the side of the baq. After much effort and singing of the spells of Carakia, Te Ika a Maui (the fishy Maui) appeared, which is now the North Island of New Zealand.
There are some who say that Mauis Watera has turned into the South Island of New Zealand and call it Te Watera a Maui (the boat of Maui). However, according to the Ngati Porou traditions, Maui's Maui' Naka Nukutaimemeha was raised headfirst on our holy Mt. Hikurangi and still is there.
Bonecarving is a symbol of Maui's holy fishhooks in this work. Portrayed with the three hands of childbirth, live and die, the mania gives an idea of the human ity's and Mauis' moribundity, who finally tried to capture the deathwoman, Hinenui-te-Po.
