Hei Tiki New Zealandby Mailboxdisco
Our Biker Tank, made exclusively for Society6, is an edgier take on the traditional Muscle Tank. It's crafted using extremely soft 100% combed jersey cotton with deep arm openings and raw cut edges. The Biker Tank is a boyfriend fit, intended to hang loose - women may wish to select one size smaller for a more fitted wear.
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.
