Sunlight Exhibition
June 2015
Ta Manawa Museum of Art, Science and History
New Zealand

In 2015 sections from part 1 of Ra are being screened within the Sunlight Exhibition at the Te Manawa Museum of Art, Science and History in New Zealand. The exhibition explores solar creation myths from around the world. The aim is to imbue in the visitor an appreciation of the various stories from around the world, and to illustrate the numerous common-elements many of them share. 

Many people are amazed to discover that Rā (Māori Sun deity) and Ra (Egyptian Sun deity) share a common name. Visitors are invited to sit on the floor, as in a real whare, or traditional Māori sleeping house, and touch the wall to select the video to watch. 

Here are a couple of photos of the Story Space.
