    Hiwihiwi are a small marine fish with spiny fins found in New Zealand’s shallow coastal waters. In this artwork Shane captures the movement of two fish beneath the water, a dance that he describes in his poem that he wrote about this artwork.

    Dance of the Hiwihiwi


    Oh little fish, I see you dance
    You speckled little beauty
    Me oh my, you wear it well
    Pink, green, purple, brown

    With your partner, I see you dance
    Your hypnotic belly dance
    Drawn to the rhythm, the rhythm of your dance
    I take a breath and watch you dance

    Lost in space, I see you dance
    In orbit, with braided weed you dance
    Admission free, to watch you dance
    Pink, green, purple, brown
