Taranaki and East Coast Wars 1865-1872

A chief leading the haka wearing a kahu huruhuru - a cloak made of feathers attached to a finely dressed flax base. This cloak sports the white breast feathers of the Kaka and the tui. This feather cloak is highly prized as a family and personal heirloom. He holds a kotiate, a close quarter weapon made from whale bone.

These figurines are made in the Wairarapa. A local family started making sets of solid lead figures in 1992. Beautifully made, their emphasis has always been on New Zealand themes. They make their own moulds, and the products are hand-painted with delicate attention to detail.

These stand approximately 6 - 9 cm high and come with their own box.
