Hand carved here in New Zealand.
The Manaia is a supernatural being depicted with the head of a bird, the body of a man and the tail of a fish, representing sky, earth and sea.
It has the role of a guardian or messenger from the heavens. The more Manaia there are on a carving the more tapu (sacred) it becomes.
Manaia can be found on vessels, weapons and ornaments.
