HJ Asmuss Wellington have some new artwork! 

Those of you in the Wellington region might like to swing by the site there and you won't miss the new mural on the side of their building.  The Seaview Business Association and local Iwi Te Atiawa have worked together to bring this to life.  

World Renowned artist "Mr G" Hoete created a landscape view of Seaview set at dusk, with the 3 feathers of the Kotuku (White Heron) representing Waiwhetu Marae.  The mural also features a powerful message -  "Arohanui ki te tangata – Goodwill to man" which derives from the teachings of Te Whiti who was part of the Taranaki Land wars and the infamous Parihaka invasion. This saying is also the name of the Wharenui (Meeting House) at Waiwhetu Marae. This powerful message against the backdrop of the Seaview landscape and the 3 Kotuku feathers has produced an amazing Mural on the Asmuss wall that can be seen at the top of Wainui Hill, Pukeatua.
