The Godwit’s Ascent

Printmaking

The Godwit ascends over the Christchurch estuary as it begins its epic journey to the Northern Hemisphere symbolising the amazing resilience of this little bird, and the people of Christchurch, who have managed to rise up and overcome great adversity.

Like the Godwit we have had to adapt and navigate our way through a shifting landscape. A new landscape which includes coloured zones designating where you can or can’t live and what foundations you must use to build.

 As nature slowly heals her scars on the land and its ecosystem, our personal scars and experiences will also heal, but will always be part of who and what we are.
