The Taiaha is a traditional close combat, hand held Maori Weapon carved in the form of an ancestor.  In Maori Weapons the tongue represents oratory skills, the eyes to keep alert, and the feathers adorn the head to distract opponents. The Taiaha is a very special Maori Carving and a treasure that is passed down from generation to generation.

Koru - a symbol of Maori art mimicking the   fiddlehead of new ferns.  It symbolizes new life, growth, development, and   peace.  The circular shape of the koru helps to convey the idea of perpetual   movement while the inner coil suggests a return to the point of   origin.
