Bicultualism Achieved In Death

Published by under Daily Dribbles

I love this shot I took at the Mission Cemetery.  Which is also the old site of the  Otamataha Pa before becoming the burial site of the Church Mission Society – 1835 – 1881 and then also the burial site for the soldier’s and sailer’s who fell in the Native Land Wars of 1864-186, both Maori and European.  This place is a lovely green quiet spot by the water right in the heart of the city.

The hard lines of the rusty aged iron pickets casting shadows across the concrete and the soft wispy leaves symbolising life just finished but not yet decayed. The age old cycle of life.
