Tuku iho, he tapu te upoko. From our ancestors, the head is sacred.
Our Whare Pōtae Collection seeks to honour, protect and cherish our upoko (head) the same way we do with pounamu, our head being one of the most tapu (sacred) parts of our body.
Literally meaning 'curl,' these taonga depict an unfurling fern. In Māori culture, the young shoots of the fern symbolise new life, growth and rejuvenation.
