This Wall Decal Set was born of a collaboration with Reo Māori Mai and our collective desire to see Te Reo and whakaaro Māori play a central role in our daily whānau lives.
This set is a limited release centred around the whakataukī:
E koekoe te tūī The tūī chatters
E ketekete te kākā The kākā cackles
E kūkū te kererū The kererū coos
This whakataukī speaks to the many voices of manu heard within te wao nui a Tāne, the forest, needed to create the chorus. This whakataukī is a reminder of the power and beauty of diversity, of celebrating the unique gifts we each have to offer. Just as it takes all kinds of manu to have a healthy ngahere, it takes all kinds of people to have a healthy whānau and community - embrace the differences and the richness they bring.
This set includes
1x Kereru (19cm x 18cm),
1x Tūī (19cm x 15cm),
1x Kākā (25cm x 17cm)
1 x Whakatauki Circle (16cm x 16cm)
1 x Whakataukī (proverb) translation in English (7cm x 7cm)
1 x Card with kōrero about the whakatauki and the intentions of this collaboration.
Designed by Aho and made in Ōtautahi, Christchurch, these wall decals are a high quality, fully removable, re-stickable, block-out wall sticker.
Wall decals are a great way to decorate your whare. They are easy to apply- just peel and stick. When you're ready for a change, they are just as effortless to remove and rearrange. When you've finished with them, just peel them off the wall and put them onto the backing sheet. They can be removed and reused countless times.
They make a beautiful addition to a nursery, a reading nook, or any place you'd like to brighten up and celebrate life's diversity!
