Tumu Herenga Waka (1) - 21 February 2015
'Tumu Herenga Waka' is a modern sculpture made up of important traditional Maori elements of welcome, invitation, journey and discovery. It is inspired by traditional palisade posts once seen surrounding traditional Maori pa by visitors as they approached. These posts (tuwatawata) have been gathered together to form a tumu herenga waka, or canoe tethering post.
