Ta Moko Menagerie

These are the raw designs for the series.  Each animal is hand drawn with symbols appropriate to what the animal symbolizes.  I have tried to keep as close as I can to the origins of the Maori tattoo language.  Each one of these designs are copyrighted to me and can be ordered on canvas, paper or burned into wood (though with some alterations on the smaller pieces).

These are some special little things I did for my daughter (well, Eevee was for her, the others... well, they insisted)

Bear in mind, the waves are all filled with the pattern of the top ones. It is to show what it will look like, though it is easier to add the pattern after the main pattern is laid down.
