Kowhaiwhai

BALK010

Kowhaiwhai are the patterns painted or carved on the ridgepoles and rafters of wharenui (meeting houses). These patterns tell the story of the tribes genealogy. These patterns were brought by Maori from Polynesia hundreds of years ago and they serve to preserve the history of their people.

This is a marvellous representation of a kowhaiwhai, carved from the antler of a red deer.

Size: 60mm (2.3 inches) long
