Created by Ngāi Tahu designer Piri Cowie, this contemporary tohu is made up of two components: Te Ao, an ink-painted circle symbolic of Te Ao our Earth and speaking of our interconnection with the environment; and He Tangata, a human figure inspired by Ngāi Tahu whānui rock art.  The tohu Ngā Tāngata acknowledges the many ancestors that have been here before us. We are part of the continuum of creativity, innovation and legacy of our ancestors. It is symbolic of kaitiakitanga (guardianship) and wellbeing. These figures are inspired by our Ngāi Tahu whānui rock art.
