‘Black phoenix’ nā Ralph Hotere

Kua mahia nei ki ngā toenga hunuhunu o te waka hī ika, ko tā te ‘Black phoenix’ a Hōtere (1984) he whakamaharatanga ki te pūtakenga mai o tōna iwi, o Te Aupōuri. I te pokea e tētahi iwi noho tata, ka tahuna e Ngāti Ruanui tō rātou pā, tahuna ana ngā hanga whai uara katoa, ka rere rātou i raro i te au pōuri. I muri o tā rātou rerenga, ka whakaingoatia anō rātou ko Te Aupōuri i runga i te tohutohu a tō rātou ariki. Ko tā te ingoa he whakamahara ake ki te āhua i pā ki a rātou me te ia, te tae o te awa i pōuri nei i te auahi me te pungarehu o ngā toenga o tō rātou pā.
