Below are two photos of a wakahuia, or treasure chest.
The design on the lid and the side of the wakahuia is puhoro, representing speed and agility.
The puhoro on the lid is in the Te Arawa style and the puhoro on the wakahuia is in the northern style. The figure on the lid is a manaia and the figures on either side are wheku. The base has the raperape pattern.
