Manaia 1.  This is one of two paintings depicting women and their role as guardians. The pattern used around the women is the traditional kowhaiwhai pattern Manaia.    As mothers, grandmothers, friends or family, women are the nurturers, the protectors, the warmth, the cuddles or the fury when needed.
