Aroha rangiwhāwhā - Pervasive Love

325.00

This style is a bit different than what I normally carve and is inspired by time spent up north visiting whanau last Christmas. It is named Aroha rangiwhāwhā - and speaks of pervasive love. True protection...

The markings show powerful energy descending through the crown of the mask. The patterns either side symbolise the method to achieve this state of deep peace and how we can generate a mind of pervasive love. It shows that we are an active participate in this process not just a passive recipient. Therefore we need to create the causes for this to happen. The koru ascending from the ‘third’ eye region symbolise wisdom, knowledge and understanding. The awakening of our limitless potential.

The back depicts a stylised taiaha. This is used to dispel obstacles to our awakening. Energy running up and down is represented either side of it. This depicts our ability to control our wild mind.

You might notice that the base of the Taiaha actually morphs from the tongue that emerges from the mouth of the mask. It shows that our speech is very powerful and has the ability to effect us positively.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the carving and over time come to fully understand all the various layers of meaning imbued in this creation. I wish you and your family the deepest peace and happiness.
