Manaia Heru • Ceremonial Comb Pendant by Barry Te Whatu, Māori artist (K111104)

Heru Hihi Parāoa by Stacy Gordine. Whalebone, pāua, black goat horn, pakohe base. “Heru is a miniature version of a Pare (lintel). Pare often represents various stages of creation with a central figure and flanking mania. In between these main figures is piercing representing light entering the world as the primal parents Ko Ranginui raua ko Papatuānuku are separated. Interspersed with this the children of these primal parents, Nga Atua Māori, are shown in various stages of formation.”
