Equality is one of 3 prints from Angie's 2019 range of paintings. The others are - Diversity & Unity.
Without diversity, the natural environment wouldn’t survive. New Zealand could be considered as one of the most diverse nations in the world due the high rates of immigration and was the first to recognise equality, with women being able to vote.
These 3 pieces celebrate and recognise New Zealand’s cultural diversity together with the unique native birds. There are over 200 nationalities in NZ, so she was able to cover a few in these pieces. The bowl is the same in each piece to show the commonality of each nationality based on where we live.
Equality shows the Tui, Hibiscus (Pacific Islands), Harekeke (NZ), Tullip (Netherlands), & Camellia – New Zealand was one of the first countries who allowed women the vote and was worn by the NZ suffragette Kate Sheppard, in this painting it represents equality.
