This image represents the intrinsic values of nature and nurture through our connection to Papatuanuku (Earth Mother). A rebirth takes place and in doing so brings with it a new consciousness of the tupuna (ancestors) that stood before. The exotic gold-finch brings the past into present and sings a song of new dawns.
