Tauranga Civic Collection


Mangatawa was part of the Miles Award Exhibition at Tauranga Art Gallery early 2011. It is now part of the Tauranga City Civic Collection, gifted by the artist.

Mangatawa represents the local Maori legend of the three whales. Mangatawa is the mother whale, also a place near Papamoa, a hill in the shape of a whale, sacred to Nga Potiki and quarried for ballast to build roads and wharves in the Tauranga area from the 1950's - 1980's.

The Pohutukawa tree shown in the painting, once stood at the burial site of the head of Nga Potiki Ariki (Cheif) Tamapahore. This was at the northernmost point, which was the head of the whale. This tree was removed along with the tonnes of rock, changing the land's form forever.

The three men with hammers are very different from how this place was quarried in reality. Machines and dynamite were used, often by local Maori who had no choice during tough times in the 50's and 60's in NZ. Karakia (prayer) was said for those buried over past centuries on this site before each day's work begun. Bones were removed as often as possible, but many remain in the local wharf and roads today.
