This piece is dedicated to a benevolent Taniwha by the name of Aromanga.
Aromanga was favoured because he would chase large shoals of fish up the river mouth to the waiting nets and therefore ensuring a good catch. The three eyes represent Mauri (talisman) stones, used by tohunga (shaman) to evoke favourable energy.
