Light box - Pikiteora
‘PikiTeOra encourages us to live a life of health, wealth and love. The four elements of the Whare Tapawhā are represented in each quarter of this design - tinana, hinengaro, wairua and whānau. The symmetrical depiction of each element serves as a reminder to keep all elements of hauora in perfect balance to achieve a healthy life of abundance. “Piki te kaha, piki te māramatanga, piki te ora”’ - Johnny Aranga, Atarau Lighting
