for providing this information.
The Marakihau was made to stand in a pool, with fish, at the entrance of the New Zealand High Commission in Singapore.
At the mouth of the Singapore River stands SingaporeÂ´s symbol of tourism, the Merlion, a much photographed, waterspouting, half lion / half fish statue.
Kemera Wilson chose the Marakihau, because of itÂ´s similarities to the Merlion. Both cultural symbols have a fish tail, and both are associated with water.
In the hands of the Marakihau are fish, representing the fish swimming beneath it. Between the fingers of the marakihau are the webbing that is associated with the Marakihau.
So, the next time you are in Singapore, and if you happen to be passing the New Zealand High Commission, stop and take time to look up at the Marakihau, and say to yourself,
"I have seen you being made!"
