Description
Rākau pāpaka (crab catching stick) originated in Hawaiki (the original homeland of Māori). Rēhua (the god of fish) handed a rākau pāpaka to a rangatira (chief) before his journey to Aotearoa. This resin pāpaka is part of a limited editionfrom an original wood carving by Kawana Waititi. The original will remain part of the New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute legacy collection.
