For Cinzah, creating this mural was a special opportunity to showcase the beauty of the ocean and the need to protect it. The mural reflects the Maritime Museum's focus on ocean health and sustainability, and depicts marine life found in our waters, including a life-sized humpback whale and giant octopus, hammerhead and mako sharks, kahawai, and snapper. It also features depictions of waka hourua Haunui and the brigantine Breeze, two vessels that educate visitors about voyaging skills from both Māori and Pākehā traditions. The night sky is filled with Matariki and other celestial navigation markers, with Auckland's iconic Rangitoto in the background.
If you're looking for a reason to visit the Viaduct and New Zealand Maritime Museum, you won't want to miss this magnificent mural. It's a breathtaking display of art and environmental awareness that will leave you in awe.
