Marks of Mana – The Evolution of Tatau

Across the Moana the art of tatau is legendary – but the marks for women contain stories and meanings that are often little known, especially for new generations.
These age old symbols of the Moko Kauae, the Fijian Veiqia, the Papuan Tep Tok and the Samoan Malu were made to celebrate the significance of the female role, but many were also created by female tatau artists.
‚Marks of Mana‘ explores the female history of tatau in our cultures, and the meaning behind these patterns linked like a necklace around the Moana.
