Spirit of the Tarairi Treeby Patricia Howitt
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 tree is on the sacred hill behind my property. It is the Tarairi (Beilschmiedia tarairi) of the Laurel family, found only north of Auckland. Its leaves are in some respects like the loquat, only smaller. This hill is covered in untouched forest, with many Tarairi trees, and at the right time of day on a sunny day, some wonderful effects of lighting appear among the trees and tree ferns.
