Te Takarangi


THE DOUBLE SPIRAL OF CREATION

Taka = Revolution, Rotation / Rangi = Heavens, Heavenly realm

The Takarangi is an intersecting double spiral pattern that signifies humanity’s celestial origin born at the beginning of the Universe.

Used widely in Maori carvings and art, the Takarangi double spiral uses space to separate it’s two solid spirals; it is this space that allows us to see the spirals.

The two intersecting solid spirals represent Ranginui and Papatuanuku (Sky father and earth Mother) and the close bond they share. The center of the Takarangi represents the origin of all, the begining, singularity. The open space between the two spirals symbolises Te Ao Marama (The World of light and Knowledge) and the link man has with the Wairua (Spiritual dimension).


Takarangi


A symbol of light and dark,

Physical and spiritual,

Growth and decay,
The dynamic circles of life.

As one grows,
another fades away.

When Ranginui
was separated from
Papatuanuku,
the light came in
and the world of today,
Te Ao Marama
came to exist.
