Paepae pataka (threshold for storehouse) (threshold; Unknown; 1800; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; OL000041)
Note: This paepae (threshold) is the outer threshold of a pataka (storehouse). While not much known about it, the chevroned or peaked heads of the figures within the carving indicate a Taranaki origin. The five figures are typical of the paepae pataka form. There are three central figures, with a female figure in the centre, and two terminating manaia (bird-like figures) on either end.
