Haka Kaha All Blacks


Haka Kaha All Blacks. 2009. Ink on Teipolo paper,  55 x 75 cm

The Haka figure
pays homage to the mana and wairua of the Tangata whenua.  It embodies the continuity between the old and the new and evokes timeless values of strength, integrity and respect, calling this generation to rise and meet the challenges of today.  New Zealand sport teams like the All Blacks have become a modern vehicle for this ancient tradition, demonstrating how it continues to have contemporary relevance.
