The mask represents the responsibility of the role of every family member. Seafood is the main source of nutrition to the Maori. The top part of the mask is a Whai (Stingray) representing the sea and its bounty. When each member of the family contributes then the whole family prospers.

Kerry has been carving for twenty-two years in many materials and is possibly the leading artist working in bone. Although he attended a diploma course in Māori design at Waiariki Polytechnic in Rotorua and learned from Hepi Maxwell, Rex Christianson and other artists working in the same materials, his style of carving and two-tone staining process are uniquely his own.
