Stunning NZ Maori Kuia - with chin moko and smoking a pipe.

Colours still bright and vivid.

Kirikino Kihutu was 107 years old when she was painted. She lived in her birthplace of Honikiwi - near Otorohanga. On her fathers side, she was a tribes woman of the Ngati Kiriwai - a sub tribe of Ngati Pou. She also had Taranaki Tribal connections on her Mother’s side.

When Kirikino was around 20 years old, she had the Moko tattooed on her chin. The design was first cut into her skin - with a bone chisel - then a dye made from roasted berries- from the Karaka tree- and rubbed into her chin - into the open wounds.

Only certain women if the tribes were chosen to wear the Moko as a mark of “rank”.
