Description

Tekoteko in Maori tradition was those freestanding figures that stood on top of carved meeting houses: Marae. Most of these figures had a stance that represented a position in a Haka, or a fighting stance, with a weapon. The purpose of the Tekoteko was to overlook the forecourt in front of a carved house and challenge any visitors to the tribe. If the visitors were deemed to be friendly, the Tekoteko would then offer protection.

Hand carved in New Zealand, with NZ native timber and paua shell.
