"The magnificent painting that Carrie Beehan created of my Chihuahua Tanemahutua captures his spirit and my heritage and life story in an organic yet textural manner... "

Tanemahuta Tekanawa 2014

H48" x W36" x D2"

Acrylic on canvas with molding paste, feather, black obsidian from Mt Kilimanjaro, New Zealand paua shell and greenstone, Scottish tartan, rare and old stamps, porcelian from Abu Dhabi and found objects.

 

This commission started with the client breaking a precious plate that she had purchased from a local market in Abu Dhabi, and asking me if I could do anything with the pieces.  I saw a helicopter in them and seeing as the client's family had owned a helicopter business, this was a good place to start.  In the painting her imposing 7lb Chihuahua dog Tanemahuta looks over the client as she climbs Mt Kilimanjaro in 2014. Tane's nose is crafted from black obsidian found on the Kilimanjaro trail and his eye is paua shell from New Zealand. Wanting to bring in both the client's Maori and Scottish heritage, Tane wears the traditional Maori ceremonial cloak while a building is covered in the family Scottish tartan.
