Carved Manaia hand carved from Kauri timber and sits on a matching base. The Manaia is a supernatural being depicted with the head of a bird, the body of a man and the tail of a fish, representing sky, earth and sea. It has the role of a guardian or messenger from the heavens. The more manaia there are on a carving the more tapu (sacred) it becomes. Manaia can be found on vessels, weapons and ornaments.
