Toi Kowhaiwhai

We have been looking at traditional Toi Maori, especially kowhaiwhai patterns. We started with the koru, then the puhore and have moved on to the mangopare pattern. I wonder who will comment first and tell me what those three words mean.


  1. koru the spiral. puhore the wave. mangopare the hammerhead shark.

  2. Awesome Jhetro, well done for that, Mrs a was really pleased that you remembered. See me tomorrow for a special award!
