Ornamental Timber Heru (Maori Comb), On A Stone Base - Alex Sands
Heru were traditionally carved from a solid piece of wood or whalebone, but sometimes, individual teeth were lashed together instead. Often used by men to fasten their long hair up into topknots, this piece also incorporates an incredible piece of raranga (weaving).
