A Cloak (korowai) can be purchased for an additional $10 to go around the piece when presenting it to the intended recipient.

This piece has Pāua inlay set in the eyes of the Tiki and surrounds of the lid and base. It closes with a neat hole and pins at each end.

Waka huia is treasure containers for storing a person's most prized personal possessions, such as hei tiki (pendants), feathers for decorating and dressing the hair, and other items of personal adornment.

Waka huia and Papa hou were imbued with the tapu (taboo) of their owners because they contained personal items that regularly came into contact with the body, particularly the head (the most tapu part of the body).

WOOD GRAIN AND COLOUR MAY VARY TO THE ONE PICTURED. If you want a certain colour please ask and I will try to accommodate you with the stock I have.
