The Maori language has very beautiful descriptions of nature and the night sky. Stars are the “family of light”. Heaven is a “sky father”. In the Maori origin story, our Ikaroa fish created the Milky Way and is the “Mother Goddess of Stars”. The Mariana statue has a long profile and distinctive large scales of shimmering gold that throw light against the black base…like a sky full of stars. Gilded metal. Black marble.
