• This design is inspired by the 'Tiaré Apétahi', the plant said to grow only on the slopes of mount Téméhani on the island of Raīatéa. Legend has it the five-petaled bloom of the flower, is the hand of a lovely maiden who passed broken-hearted while waiting for her poéhéré's (lover) return.

    Ivanui's Tivaivai draws from this a poignant tale of love departed.
