Above the Earth
Above The Earth - (Ranginui - The Sky Father) Description: There is no place left on Earth that man has left untouched or unaffected. Even the air and water itself has been poisoned by his movements. But high above it all the Earth must still seem like such a magical place - even as the stars, the sun and the moon must seem looking up from it. Legend: When Tanemahuta (God of Forests) separated Ranginui (The Sky Father) and Papatuanuku (Mother Earth), Ranginuis tears fell upon the face of Papatuanuku and his grief would not abate. The sun and the moon and the stars were as a gift gathered and offered by Tanemahuta to help ease Rangis grief.
