Ko Te Whatumanawa; Eye Of The Heart
"Just stop! Think, then carry on!"
From his studio in Tairāwhiti Gisborne, Sir Derek Lardelli creates stunning pieces of artwork inspired by his vision.
The Whatu (centre or focus) of the Manawa (heart) is a centering piece created to inspire mindfulness of what is important, and the importance of continuation.
This one of kind piece is created from native timber, acrylic paint, paua inlays and steel plating.
The Manawa (heart) will be provided to its new owner upon the close of the exhibition in late November.
