Introducing Maori Lifestyles - Adrienne Rewi.  This was how the Maori caught koura (crayfish) in the old days. I photographed this beautiful piece – “Taruke (Ngati Maru, Thames)” at Auckland Museum. They have a superb collection of Maori carvings and artefacts. This craypot is made from “young manuka stems bent around a supplejack and manuka frame and tied together with harakeke (flax) and vines.” Adrienne Rewi
