PUAWHANANGA SHELTER – REBECCA TER BORG
This piece seeks to create an atmosphere of calm and joy by bringing a slice of the natural beauty of te taio ō Aotearoa to an urban landscape. Borg has highlighted some of our lesser known manu and flora – te tītitipounamu (Rifleman) and te mohua (Yellowhead) perch amongst puawhananga (native clematis) and the more recognisable pink mānuka which Declana atronivea, the North Island lichen moth floats above.
Rebecca ter Borg is a free-lance illustrator and sometimes mural-artist based in Tāmaki Makaurau. She loves to draw fantastical nature-based scenes and to inspire love and care of the environment.
