Paikea (Humpback Whale) - Black - By Paula Coulthard
From the Ika Moana/Whale Series by Paula Coulthard. Ika Moana is a very old Maori name for whales, the English translation is Fish of the Sea. This series of work is inspired by the concept of Kaitiakitanga (guardianship and protection), and features 'Paikea', with the new moon rising and 'Matariki ', signalling the Maori New Year in Winter. This is the time when Humpback whales migrate past the east coast of the South Island and through the Cook Straight.
Based in the Wairarapa, Paula Coulthard is a mixed media artist, whose love of natural materials and history, inspires the beautiful flags that she creates. Using a base of cotton canvas, Paula individually stencils and paints the imagery to create these highly sought after works of art. This flag is from a limited edition of 30, and comes with wooden batons at the top and bottom, and metal teeth which enables it to be easily hung.
Width - 900mm x Height - 1650mm
