Karakia lll

May the love that is between us

remain as constant as the tide,

as warm as the sun,

and as precious as the morning.  

- Ka rite tonu tō tāua aroha
ki te rere o te tai
ki te mahana o te ra
kia  puiaki pēnei i te ata
Karakia are traditional Maori incantations used to invoke spiritual
guidance and protection.


Love is precious and this print speaks about never taking it for granted. It is a blessing and acknowledgment of deep love and connection - It could be romantic love, the love between friends or the love that is within the home and family. This print says beautifully what is sometimes hard to say and whenever you see this print, you will be reminded of the deep love you share with another. The koru design around the words is about the intertwining of lives, and the three Tui are the protecting spirits of loyalty, trust and love. 

'Thank you so much for the art work and for going above and beyond to ensure it arrived in time. The art arrived safely and beautifully packaged. The personal note was much appreciated. Our colleague loves it and the whakatauki perfectly matches this occasion. Your art is even more beautiful in real life' 
- Gemma B
