Te Maramataka / Lunar Calendar - Original Painting

Te Maramataka / Lunar Calendar | Ra Gossage

The Māori lunar calendar is called the Maramataka, which literally means the turning of the moon. It marks the phases of the moon in a lunar month.

Each night, which also typically marks a day, was given a name and overtime each day/night was accompanied by information guiding fishing, gardening, and other activities in the natural world.

During a typical lunar month, some days are noted as being favourable for resource harvesting, whereas other days are known to be unfavourable.

Here Ra has created an exceptionally beautiful piece weaving in some of her trademark Kowhaiwhai patterns.
