This Matariki magnet features a stunning NASA photograph of the Matariki asterism, also known as the Pleiades or the Seven Sisters. It also includes the names of each of the stars that form the star cluster that is so important to the Māori people of New Zealand.
Sparkling in the winter sky just before dawn, Matariki signals the Māori New Year. Traditionally this was a time to remember the dead and celebrate new life. With this magnet on your fridge you can easily become familiar with the constellation and impress your friends by pointing it out in the night sky.
