    If anyone has any background information on the Maori sky culture,
    please send it to me. Specifically of interest - mythology, asterisms
    and images (i.e. anything related to constellation art).

    Thanks,
    Matthew

    Hi Matthew,

    As a continuation of the work begun by Dan Smale, I've begun work on creating Māori constellation artwork (more accurately I'm directing my more artsy partner to create it). Some images are starting to come along, but I'm just wondering if there is any convention regarding overlapping constellations? Māori will often use the exact same stars from one constellation in another season to represent something completely different. The overlap doesn't bother me particularly because I'll be using artwork from a script where I can isolate selected constellation artwork. But let me know what your preferences are and once I've got things a bit more refined I can send them through to you.

    Thanks
    Jake
