digital art inspired by the Maori new year Matariki, and star cluster, also a dedication to the beauty that is our Maori wahine. I wanted to give the artwork a celestial feel, not like gods, but apart of the stars and systems, a synergy within. giving you that sense of scope and scale http://www.facebook.com/onesianArt
