"These relief works were produced while Graham was artist-in-residence at the Christchurch Polytechnic, now Ara Institute of Canterbury. Graham included the distinctive snowy peaks and braided rivers of Kā Pākihi-whakatekateka-a-Waitaha / Canterbury in his representation of the atua (deities) of sky and earth - Papatūānuku and her celestial husband Ranginui." ~ Christchurch Art Gallery
