 A beautiful print of one of the South Island's defining landmarks.

The legend:

According to Māori legend, Aoraki was a young boy who, along with his three brothers, was the son of Rakinui (also, Ranginui), the Sky Father. On their voyage around Papatūānuku, the Earth Mother, their canoe became stranded on a reef and tilted. Aoraki and his brothers climbed onto the top side of their canoe. However, the south wind froze them and turned them to stone. Their canoe became the Te Waka o Aoraki, the South Island, and their prows, the Marlborough Sounds. Aoraki, the tallest, became the highest peak, and his brothers created the Kā Tiritiri o te Moana, the Southern Alps.
