Te Hikoi o Ririkoko
Nga Hau e Wha WAINUI -A-ONO: Artist
See full details
The panel portrays the journey of Ririkoko of Tumatakokiri (Golden Bay) to return his daughter from Te Wairua (land of the souls) back to life. We used an ancient oriori (lament) describing Ririkoko's fabulous journey as the basis for the panel design.
The panel was first exhibited at The Suter in ‘Whaia rā te Toi Tangata: Seek the Arts of the People’ 2000, curated by Ian McDonald and later presented to The Suter in recognition of the gallery’s support and encouragement of Māori artists.
