Bill✔️ Wax-eye (Tauhou) having "an absolute ball" in a massive cluster of food-rich Kowhai flowers, a New Zealand early springtime scene.

The carving is part of the canoe house on Treaty grounds, Waitangi. Incorporating an ancestor into the dwelling is a common architectural feature of the canoe and meeting houses.
