Rangi Tuwhera Open Sky offers a glimpse into the world of Taonga Pūoro or traditional Māori instruments. We have a virtual encounter with a real pūtōrino and can examine the detailed carving on it created by master carver Sir Brian Flintoff. In the experience we are surrounded by Matai trees from whose wood the pūtōrino is made and are in the presence of Hine Raukatauri the Atua (goddess) of music, while the pūtōrino story unfolds around us. We share this treasure with the world by joining traditional skills with contemporary technology.
