Wooden heru

This 16-tooth heru (ornamental comb) is carved from a single piece of wood. The stylised beaked figure on top has inlaid pāua-shell eyes. It dates from the mid-18th century and was probably collected during one of James Cook's voyages to New Zealand in the late 1700s.

Made from bone, this heru features a figure in profile at each side, looking outwards. One has a broken projection on its head. There is a carved head between the two figures, and all have paua shell inset eyes. The comb has five prongs and rauponga surface carving.
