Manaia (Guardian Figure)
This double headed manaia represents the guardians of spiritual energy, the concept of tapu and noa (sacred and common). Traditionally they represented the aura; they expressed the characteristics and the spiritual nature of people.

The original concept designs for the collection of Aotearoa icons comes from a design project that James was commissioned to undertake in collaboration with Ngati Whatua and Transit New Zealand in 2004 as part of the Saggitti junction motorway system redevelopment in Aucland. This is the first public showing of this collection of designs.
