Orion

a prominent constellation visible throughout the world, named after Orion, a gigantic, supernaturally strong hunter in Greek mythology.
The Māori called the three stars forming Orion's belt "Tautoru" and they knew that the end of the year had come when the three stars were lined up vertically on the horizon.

Hunt your way to invincible comfort with Orion

Sirius

the most brilliant star in the night sky, also known as “the dog star” because it dominates the “Greater Dog” constellation. This configuration of 8 stars represents the larger of Orion’s two hunting dogs that accompany him as he hunts Lepus, the rabbit. At the end of the Māori year, Sirius or ”Takurua”, is located directly above Orion’s belt.

Sirius invincible comfort at zenith level.

Scorpius

a large constellation located near the centre of the Milky Way depicting the scorpion that killed Orion. In Māori mythology, Scorpius is called ”Te Matau a Maui” and is not a scorpion but a giant fish hook that was used by the half-god ”Māui” to pull the North Island of New Zealand from the bottom of the ocean.

Scorpius the sweet sting of invincible comfort.

Canopus

Its name comes from the mythological Canopus, who was the navigator at sea for Menelaus, king of Sparta. The Māori had several different names for Canopus amongst which ”Atutahi” which meant ’stand-alone’. As the second brightest solitary star after/to Sirius, it served as an important stellar compass to guide the ancestors of the Māori safely across the Pacific Ocean to their new homeland.

Canopus your bright beacon to invincible comfort.

The Collection

Stars are eternal, no man can make them cease to shine. Primitive tribes, like the ancestors of the Maori, used stars as light, map and compass, to guide the way

Perseus

One of the oldest known constellations in the night sky, first catalogued by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd century. It shows the demigod (half god) Perseus with the head of the Gorgon Medusa. Algol, the best known star of the constellation representing the eye of Medusa, may have been named “Matohi” by the Māori people.

Perseus the personification of invincible comfort.

Pegasus

The constellation depicting the winged white horse that sprang from the neck of Medusa when Perseus beheaded her. The Polynesian forefathers of the Māori called the Great Square of Pegasus “Ka Lupe O Kawelo”, the kite of the great chief Kawelo. This cluster of four stars was one of the important beacons that guided the ancestors of the Māori safely across the Pacific Ocean to their new homeland.

Pegasus your wings to invincible comfort.
