This collection is based on the star Tupuārangi(male), one of the stars in the Matariki Constellation. Tupuārangi is similar to Tupuānuku (the star of all cultivated and uncultivated food products) in terms of its connection to food and growth; however, in this instance he is associated with food that comes from the sky. Tupuārangi is linked to nga manu (birds). For this collection we drew inspiration from the manu, the Kererū, the Kākā and the Kāhu. We have also used the overall theme of Tupuārangi as a hunter of birds. This earring is our Ngutu Kākā design based on the beak of the Kākā bird.
