A time to rest
by Jessica Hinerangi (@Māori_Mermaid)
"Hari tau hou Māori! This illustration is dedicated to those quiet moments we take with our communities, our chosen whānau. Matariki and Puanga are times to rest and I hope this drawing can be a reminder to everyone to take that rest, and spend some time outside in te taiao."
