Our sculptures are antipodean themed, with a synthesis of Māori, Pacifica and Celtic symbology. Our belief is that "Antipodean" is a good name for what is Aoteoroa`s (New Zealands) cultural crossroads or tūrangawaewae. Tūrangawaewae is a Maori word used to express a sense of identity and independence associated with having a particular home base.
Our sculptures do not slavishly follow any specific cultural symbols but instead try to reflect a joining together or fusion of the cultural histories into a new "Antipodean" or New Zealand vernacular. Aotearoa New Zealand is a unique country and we believe that a unique combination of our various sculptural, artistic and symbolic heritages is a good style for Goosewood to express through its sculptures.
