Garden show exhibitors and garden designers Danny Kamo and 'All Black' (New Zealand's World Champion Rugby Team) Andy Ellis are off to Singapore to exhibit at the Singapore Garden Festival.
Their garden design is based on the MÄori legend of RÅ«aumoko, the MÄori god of earthquakes. He is the youngest child of Rangi (Sky Father) and PapatÅ«Änuku (Earth Mother) who lies with his mother underground and causes the earth to shake when he moves.
The garden will be in the Fantasy Category, so it's quite fitting that Weta and Richard Taylor help create the underworld in which RÅ«aumoko lives. This project is being managed by Weta veteran John Baster.
Danny says the exhibit is quite different to their other two award-winning gardens at Ellerslie. "The exhibit will stand 4.5 metres high and is being engineered to shake as RÅ«aumoko moves.
While the garden has an earthquake-theme based on Maori mythology, it also focuses on the rebuild of Christchurch, offering hope as the land and city is rejuvenated.
