Wooden Wakahuia

Wakahuia was traditionally a vessel (waka) for the precious tail feathers of the Huia bird (now extinct). They are now used to keep your precious jewellery and other taonga (treasures) inside. 

This wakahuia has been beautifully handcarved with a tiki design - with paua inlaid for the eyes.
