of mana and prestige 

This wahaika is ornately carved. The beautiful flowing nature of the form is embellished with a stylised wheku (head) which would traditionally have acted as a guardian for its carrier.  The pākati and haehae acknowledge whakapapa and the mana within.

Mangeao is a native timber, and this piece was recovered from whenua in Maniapoto lovingly cared fro by 5 generations of the same whānau.
