Since the 1970s there has been renewed interest in Māori kites. Traditional materials and methods were rediscovered. Kites also became a focus for artists. Carrie Snowden’s sculpture, ‘Kahurangi o Te Maia’ (1998) stands 5 metres high and 4 metres wide. The name was given to the hokioi (giant eagle) befriended by Te Maia. The eagle flew Te Maia home to his people.
