Robin Slow - Pumotomoto

Stretched canvas 122 x 61cm

Acrylic, gold leaf

The doorway from the eleventh heaven into the twelfth, the place where the esoteric knowledge
was kept, the place of Io, was guarded by Tui. The name of this doorway was called pumotomoto.

This is also the name of the instrument that played into the fontanel of the young to transfer
whakapapa, karakia from the elder to the learner.

Tane climbed the heavens to gather this knowledge and brought it to the earth realm.
