Cee’s Oddball Challenge: Pou

Maori Scultpures-8449

Good morning from a cold Hastings day.  We seemed to have missed all the wet weather that has hit the lower North Island.  But it will be cold.  The South Island has had a huge dumping of snow – the ski fields were closed due to too much snow.  So thinking of my family and friends affected by this bad weather.

I know it is the summer solstice over in the northern hemisphere.  So we have just celebrated our winter solstice. Now it is downhill to spring – shame we have to get through a couple of cold months first.

Some more Maori sculpture this week for Cee’s challenge over at Cee’s Photography.  These are called Pou – no, not the game.

POU

The pou (carved posts) have been made in a partnership between Hastings District Council and Nga Marae o Heretaunga. The totara for the pou is from Waimana, a gift from the Tuhoe people. A marae has produced each pou to represent a tupuna (ancestor). Each pou faces the marae who contributed to the carving.

Thanks for visiting.  I have to go out this morning so I don’t have time to go around my reader this morning so will catch up this evening.

  1. We are having a hot summer so far, so your cold weather sounds marvelous. Your totem poles (or whatever they are called) are very cool for this week’s odd balls. 😀
