The Patterns of Nature
The ancient Māori artist have always been fascinated with the natural world. Through the understanding of symbolism and abstract form they depicted nature as movements of rhythmic and cyclic patterns.
These patterns were interpreted as the life force and energy of the universe and were used in whakairo Māori carving, and in Tā Moko traditional Māori tattoo.
This electronic book will introduce the reader to Māori Mystical Art, an ancient painted art form known as Kowhaiwhai through a series of art works called The Sacred Māori Scrolls by Tiki O’Brien.
Kowhaiwhai is a relatively unknown art form and is where Tiki derives his primary source of inspiration for creative works.
Tiki is an artist and designer, and is the founder of www.maori-arts.com This book reveals the mysteries through Tiki's extraordinary insights and experience in Māori mystical art.
