The making of a memorial

RURU MEMORIAL

Here you can view the process of making this beautiful memorial and read the story and inspiration behind the design.

Its always a huge honour and responsibility when I'm asked to produce a sculpture that reflects the Mana, the Mauri, and the Wairua of a loved one.


You take something that she loved like the Ruru, you add koru that represent her mother and brother, and a sunflower that reflects her marae.


The Ruru is a powerful figure in Maori mythology, believed to be a Kaitiaki or protective guardian spirit.
