 'Koa' Print by Melissa Sharplin

This little, retro Maori doll is wearing traditional Maori dress worn by members of kapa haka groups for concerts and events. She wears a kahu huruhuru (feather cloak), pari (bodice), tipare (headband) and two poi (balls on string) which are swung to music and song and are hanging from her waistband of her piupiu (flax skirt). Around her neck is a pounamu pendant.
