Hei Rere Mai

You have the wings to fly

  ~ E āi ō harihau hei rere mai

- Whakatauki (maori proverb)

This print says 'I have faith in you, I know you can do it!' It's about confidence and feeling proud, about encouraging self belief. These beautiful birds are leaving the nest. The kowhaiwhai and koru patterns are the feathers in their wings, the skills they have learned and the work they have done to prepare. It's the pride you feel as a Parent or Teacher. But this whakatauki (Maori proverb) is not only for the young (rangatahi) it's praise for anyone who has done the work to make their life better! Ka pai and well done!
