Weather god blows in to liven up ferry terminal
A new mural celebrating Devonport’s connection to the sea and wind was officially welcomed last Friday.
Tāwhirimātea (God of Weather) by Trina Wirihana adorns a wall at the Devonport ferry terminal.
The mural was a colourful addition to Devonport’s “arts-based community”, Devonport Business Association president Dianne Hale said at the welcoming event.
Auckland Transport Property Optimisation Specialist Cam Mitchell-Sisler said the installation aimed to bring “some light and vibrancy back” to Devonport Wharf.
“We want to bring people back to this place and make it a bit of a destination.”
The ceremony included a blessing with two pūkāea (trumpets) representing the breath of Tāwhirimātea.
