Different view of 'Taniwha Moana', a one-of-a-kind handwoven sculpture containing 700 metres / 2297 feet of galvanized wire. Taniwha Moana is inspired by the guardian ocean spirit that Māori believe traveled with the original canoes from Hawaiki to New Zealand. At 2.58 metres / 8.5 feet long, Taniwha Moana can sit or hang indoors or outdoors. . . . #OneofaKind #HandWoven #Galvanized #Wire #CheriseThomsonSculpture #MadeinNewZealand #NewZealandMade #NZMade #NZ #Auckland #NewZealand #Art…

'Kina' in a different light. 'Kina' is a one-of-a-kind handwoven sculpture containing 300 metres / 984 feet of galvanized wire. I collected Kina on the beach as a child, and I've long admired the surprising beauty and fragility hidden beneath the Kina's spiky exterior. At 36 cm / 14 inches high and 52 cm / 20.5 inches wide, Kina can easily sit or hang indoors or outdoors. #OneofaKind #HandWoven #Galvanized #Wire #CheriseThomsonSculpture #MadeinNewZealand #NewZealandMade #NZMade #NZ #Art…
