Cultures the world over have deep and intimate relationships with kites. According to many Maori tribal legends, kites in the shape of birds were used as an intermediary step between man and the gods. Specially made kites were used to prophesy the future, and omens were read from the kite’s movement in the air currents.
Untouched World™ finds its whole philosophy summarised in a symbol representing a Maori Kite, the emblem of an ideal relationship between man and nature. It is the outcome of an art involving natural materials and human skills; it links the earth to the sky, and symbolises a soaring freedom of the spirit.
