Artist Statement

The Manaia is a creature of mystery, a protector and guardian of spiritual energy, a messenger between the spirit world and the realm of men. The Manaia is a mixture of bird and man and sometimes serpent, reminiscent of the bird man. Here he has the body of a serpent, symbolising our genetic connection to brother bird, as our DNA is spiralic in nature, like two serpents intertwining each other. He Taniwha, he Tipua.
