Earrings - Tupuārangi Ngutu Kākā
ORDERING NOTE: Sold in Packs of 2
This collection is based on the star Tupu?rangi (male), one of the stars in the Matariki Constellation. Tupu?rangi is similar to Tupu?nuku (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. Tupu?rangi is linked to nga manu (birds). For this collection we drew inspiration from the manu, the kerer?, the k?k? and the k?hu. We have also used the overall theme of Tupu?rangi as a hunter of birds. This earring is our Ngutu K?k? design based on the beak of the k?k? bird.
