Te Ra - The Sun - Artworks

We visited the Otakou Marae last week and heard some legends. One of the legends was about how Maui slowed the sun. We created some art showing the sun - te ra - and we have tried to use some maori designs. We have looked at the koru shape which looks like a fern frond unfurling. It symbolises strength, growth and new life. We hope you can see some koru in our sun art. They look really bright and firey up on our wall. We used some glitter to make them shine as well!
