This finely carved Wakahuia (treasure Box) was painted from an original piece
carved in the Rotorua district around 300 years ago. The Wakahuia is used to
keep Taonga (memorabilia) of the deceased. It is bought out on special
occasions to pay homage to our ancestors. The family still use it to this day.
