Fold and cut in thirds, pastels on top, warm and cold colours. Mid section shading with pencil. Bottom section collage with newspaper and newspaper the same colour as the inside of the koru in the top section.

Manaakitanga is also the most appropriate Māori concept to articulate the nation’s role in hosting Rugby World Cup 2011.
