This finely carved Wakahuia (Treasure Box) was painted
from an original piece carved in the Rotorua district about
180 years ago.
Representing marriage and birth. It was filled with fine food
and berries and used on special occasions. The bowl sitting
on the back of a Kuri (dog) is a very high symbol to
Maoridom with the two guardians holding up the sun.
