The Golden Bulls Head Lyre is from the ancient Sumerian city of Ur located in present-day Iraq. NZ man John Knotts' lifelong dream was to create a replica of this sacred instrument. Working in collaboration with amazing artist Sundus Abdul Hadi (Montreal/Iraq) and performing together with taonga puoro player Jo’el Komene (Tauranga, NZ), we premiered the Golden Bull Lyre for this very special project, put on by the Incubator artspace.

This installation honours mothers and babies who had miscarriage or abortions - and the dads and families too. This wall is a healing wall.

It will be up in ART studio for the month of August. Mother Talent Wall, August 2016. Opening & performance night Wednesday August 17 with additional performances by Victor Steffensen and Julia Fujita.
