Nga Kete Toru o Matauranga

This is a kete, or woven basket, made in 1964 by Rangimāhora Reihana-Mete (1899-1993). It is woven from undyed kiekie (liana, a climbing forest plant) using the raranga (plaiting) technique, whereby strips of leaf are laid diagonally. A pair of haraheke (flax) handles are tied onto the interior. The kete is bleached, has a serrated top rim, and measures 18.5 cm x 30.5 cm.

Image of Taonga Whakairo. This taonga is in three sections. These are a centre panel of tukutuku, flanked by two poupou. The work is rich in symbolism as it depicts the main gods of the Māori pantheon that are associated with our work. The work is also a symbol of LINZ's historic past and of its core business today, of being the kaitiaki (guardian) and interpreter of land information, for New Zealand.
