In this slightly surreal interpretation of an iconic New Zeland landscape, glacial lake Pukaki glows turqoise in colour and leads towards Aoraki Mt Cook, our tallest peak.
With surrounding mountains covered in cloud and mist, Aoraki stands firmly as a quiet giant that has endured patiently over generations of human migration, natural evolution, creation and extinction.
The ancient mountain bore witness to the rise and fall of New Zealand’s majestic Pouakai Eagle – a native bird known to prey on Moa with a wingspan of up to three meters, which became extinct A.D.1400. These immense, graceful creatures are pictured soaring over Aoraki as the guardians of the history and wairua (spirit) of the land.
