That which we treasure
An exercise in the melding of traditional forms and concepts in a modern world brought Michael Matchitt to create the waka hue series. Traditionally, a waka huia was a repository for things precious - often huia feathers. A hue or gourd was also a storage receptacle.
This piece combines the form of a hue with the concept of a waka huia. The product is a stunningly beautiful contemporary work with much symbolism in that it can house your physical taonga (treasures) or metaphorically, your dreams and aspirations.
