Te Awanui (waka).


Te Awanui, carved from a 300-year-old Kauri tree by master carver Tuti Tukaokao in 1972 after a request by the City to the Maori Cultural and Promotional Committee. It was agreed that Tauranga Moana should have its own ceremonial waka to use on special occasions when celebrating the history of Tauranga. Te Awanui is the original name of Tauranga Harbour. Photograph: Timespanner (2011, reproduced here with permission).
