At nearly four and a half metres long, Te Rā brings a wealth of historical and cultural significance to the Museum's most beloved gallery.
Held in the collection of the British Museum, this is the first time Te Rā has returned to Aotearoa in its more than 200 year history, and is a special opportunity for New Zealanders to see the sail first-hand.
Te Rā will be accompanied by the display of two additional sails produced by Te Rā Ringa Raupā, a group of highly skilled weavers mentored by weaver, installation artist and researcher, Dr Maureen Lander.
Through a process of research, knowledge sharing and hands-on experimentation, the group has completed two sibling sails of Te Rā. Hine Mārama is a small-scale model that shows the meticulous thought process, innovative techniques and challenges encountered in the pursuit of recreating Te Rā; and Māhere Tū ki te Rangi, a stunning full-sized recreation of Te Rā borne of the collective skill and effort of the group.
