Hei Tiki New Zealandby Mailboxdisco
These premium quality all over print shirts feature original art from seam to seam. The cotton-soft 100% polyester wicks moisture and maintains a rich color throughout. All over print tees are unisex fit, so women should make size selections accordingly and order a minimum of one size smaller. Please Note: Every shirt is uniquely produced using a sublimation process that can create anomalies in some areas, typically under the arm, that leaves small portions of fabric white.
ABOUT THE ART
This started off as a typography design, it is in fact mostly made from letters. I began with two b's and a couple of o's and built it up from there. Hei Tiki is iconic in New Zealand and Maori culture. When I was a lad our Nation airline used to give plastic ones out as gifts. The hei-tiki pendant of the Māori which is worn around the neck. Hei-tiki are usually carved from pounamu or greenstone. This Tiki is red and is holding a green banner that says NZ.
