Pōhutukawa 2024

Pōhutukawa 2024

The second star is Pōhutukawa, which is connected to the dead and those who have passed away in the past year. Māori belief covers that the spirit leaves the body when a person dies, and then journeys along the pathway of spirits known as Te Ara Wairua. This journey ends at the tip of the North Island at Te Rerenga Wairua where an ancient Pōhutukawa tree stands on a rocky ledge towards the ocean. The spirits then descend the aka (root) of the tree entering the underworld.

This is shown with the black and white background, the white being our realm and the black being the underworld. The stairway is used to display the journey from life into death.

You can look upon this star in reflection and remembrance of loved ones who have passed.
