“I wanted to go for something that was visually interesting, so I created a European version of the top and included Maori references through heiroglyphics. Spinning Top traces the history of Whanganui-a-Tara, the Maori name for Wellington. The major mythical story is that of the two taniwha in the harbour. The taniwha formed the harbour and the surrounding hills with their movements.” R.Jahnke

“… It is the Christ, who by crucifixion died, from the life for the salvation of humanity to the last drop of blood…” [description after written informations in the Church, translated from Italian]
