Purple has long been associated with wealth and royalty, luxury, spiritualism, creativity, mystery and magic.
Purple both calms and stimulates our bodies, putting us in the right place for introspection and focused insight. It fosters creativity by awakening our senses while promoting the quiet necessary to make intuitive, insightful observations. Purple creates a harmonious balance of awareness and peace.
Tawhirimatea God of the Winds.
In Māori mythology, Tāwhirimātea (or Tāwhiri) is the god of weather, including thunder and lightning, wind, clouds and storms.
This design consists of a mixture of black and purple coming up to a natural rooster coque with white coque to finish at the top. We use a patiki taniko band in purple to complete this design.
The Pātiki design is based on the Flounder (fish) which is a symbol for hospitality.According to legends, the pātikitiki significance relates to being able to provide 100% - not only for the husband, or the whānau, but for the whole iwi.
