This is a chiselled carving done in South Island Oamaru Stone. The kaupapa (Subject) of this carving is the representation of the two life forces of Puna and Hani. Puna and Hani represent the Male and Female of all living life. These are represented by the heads located at each end of the carving. In cosmology of Maori, it is said that the seventy children of Ranginui and Papatuanuku separated their parents. This enabled the Male and Female element Puna and Hani to go forth and have children. The middle of the carving represents the circle of life, the beginning of Birds, Trees and human life. As can be seen this carving is two sided, the eyes are inlaid Paua on both sides.
