Bone & Ivory

E tau hoki te uaua kiore, hei hoariri me te parāoa.

Is the strength of the rat enough to confront the whale.

The saying above refers to the prestige and power whales have in Māori culture both in life and death. While Āhua displays taonga parāoa (whale bone and ivory artworks), these are only available on a commission basis and on the proviso the whale bone is supplied by the commissioner. To avoid commercialisation of this resource, Āhua will consider non-monetary-based trades for taonga parāoa.
