Ko Hōri Pukehika e hahau ana me tana toki, i te tau 1906

He mea whakamahi te toki hei tārai i te whakairo, i mua i te whaoa ki te tā me te uhi. Heoi, arā anō ngā tohunga whakairo pērā i a Hōri Pukehika (e whakaaturia ana i konei ki te Whakakitenga Māori i Ōtautahi) o Te Āti Haunui-a-Pāpārangi ki Whanganui, i āhei te whakaoti whakairo ki te toki kapukapu anake. I te wā i tangohia ai tēnei whakaahua, he torutoru noa iho ngā tohunga i te whakamahi tonu i te toki kapukapu. Mai i tēra wā kua whakaorangia mai te mātauranga o te toki kapukapu.
