Mataora

SOLD
Mataora asked Uetonga to paint designs on his face, and Uetonga complied, with the condition that Mataora’s kaitiaki remain with Uetonga. Mataora entered the house of Uetonga, but to the amusement of those within, Mataora’s face designs (kiri tuhi) began to run, causing him great embarrassment.
