He pouaka rama (Polynesian light box)

Koianei tētahi o ngā pouaka rama e toru e kīia ai ko Ngā Pouaka Mārama a Toi, he mea waihanga nā Vanessa Pātea. Ko tēnei wahanga e whakaata ana i te manu frigate, he tohu mō ngā hononga ki Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa, he tohu hoki kei hea te whenua i te moana nui. Ka tohu te kōpiko o te ara o te manu ki te ara i haerea e ngā tāngata tōmua i a rātou ka heke ki ngā whenua hōu. Ko te Taki o Autahi tērā huinga whakaatu, he tohu ki te wāhi nui o ngā whetū ki ngā tikanga haere moana o ngā tāngata tōmua ki Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa.
