rangitoto is a volcanic island just off auckland’s northern coastline, and can be seen from many parts of the city. it erupted about 600 years ago (within memory of the local maori tribes) and has entered their mythology. the ‘horizons’ refer, i guess, to the geographic and cultural positions of rangitoto…always horizons, rarely centre stage. it also is the logo for the ports of auckland, though it had to be pointed out to me before i realised it was! go here for more on the myths and geology of rangitoto, and here for more pictures.
