This collection and design was created by Mahu Rangi Pene and Tom Simmons, for boxer Dylan Biggs. Dylan is a hard worker motivated by his wife and daughter, with goals and aspirations of striving in his passion, boxing.
The central design within the moko resembles strength and giving flight to your spirit. It is also represented in the wings. The wings also resemble a connection to Tāwhirimatea, and the movement within Ngā Hau E Wha.
The 2 colours either side represent a common concept in te ao Māori which is the taha tane and taha wahine. Taha tane representing strength, brute and masculinity. While the taha Wāhine represents patience, calmness and femininity. It is believed in te ao Māori that we are all born with both some more to one side then others. But having a clear divide in the middle is to encourage a balance between both.
