This is, I guess, like an imagined front cover for the book Whale Rider by Witi Ihimaera. It's a wonderful book and story. The film version, which is probably better known internationally, is beautiful (; the scene when Paikea is reading the speech for her absent grandfather puts a lump in my throat every time). If you haven't read the book or seen the film, then I'd gently urge you to.
Have an awesome weekend where ever you are!
Also.... next weekend (saturday 4th Feb) I'm back at the local Vintage and Craft Market, with a big Midwinter Sale! So if you live locally pop by, say hello and maybe pick up a bargain.
