Open edition canvas print by indigenous New Zealand Māori artist, Taryn Beri of the Ngāti Toa, Te Atiawa and Ngāti Raukawa tribes.
Featuring the 'Believe in yourself' design based on an original painting by the artist. Black, white and gold in color. The original painting was completed in Perth, Australia.
"This design represents the ancestors and genealogy that is always present within the DNA, blood and bones of a person - whakapapa that is able to be accessed at any time. This design is a reminder of all of the people that came before you and contributed to make you who you are today. This design reminds us that we descend from greatness and that we too have the capacity and capability for greatness - just as our ancestors did. It also refers to our own descendants and the continuum of genealogy that connects us all, past, present and future. Your ancestors believe in you - so believe in yourself! I created this painting at a difficult time in my life when I was living in Perth, Australia alone and isolated from my family and friends. I didn't know many people in that place at the time and I was lonely and struggling financially, emotionally and spiritually. I painted the message of 'believe in yourself' as a personal affirmation that was necessary for me at the time to survive, keep moving forward and to help me get on and do what I needed to do."
