Taaniko by Fin Dac
Most mornings when I drive past the Mount Maunganui vet centre this painting on the large wall catches my eye...so after getting curious I googled who the artist was. Apparently it was created by an Irish artist named Fin Dac who was here in NZ in January this year, the story that I found says he tapped into the local kiwi culture to make a themed piece called Taaniko. He found a model and created this mural which resembles both woman's strength and the loss of culture/heritage of the Maori people. I personally really like it, what do you think?
