Te Ao Mārama (The world of light and life).

In the beginning there was Te Pō (The dark night), the empty vast darkness, where no light exists. Within the realm of Te Pō our celestial parents, Ranginui (Sky Father) and Papatūānuku (Earth Mother), lay together in a tight embrace with their children nestled tightly between them. 

Longing for more room and freedom to move, the children each tried to separate their parents, but without success. It was not until their son Tāne attempted the feat by pushing Ranganui aloft with his legs while his shoulders and arms held Papatūānuku below, that the two parents were successfully separated. This act allowed for Te Ao Mārama (the world of light and life) to come into being. 

Within this composition, Tāne Mahuta is used as a focal point while applying intensity of colour to create light that is associated with Te Ao Mārama.

The saturated hues create a density, imitating rays of light. These motifs are utilised to create visual movement around the composition. The Matrix (Background) represents Te Pō, the vast emptiness of black. Tāne Mahuta is separating both motifs of Ranginui and Papatūānuku which represents the journey from Te Pō to Te Ao Mārama.
