This tribute to David Bowie spans an age. Bowie explored his identity and intellect through song thus sealing his place within popular culture. We wear marks of identification to communicate to others our tribe. Here, the wahine presents her culture like a time traveller, informing the multi layered influence of her experience. The horse acts as a symbol of freedom, instinct, intuition and status.
