Poi awe (percussive device) (poi; Unknown; 1800; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; registration number: ME000150)
Note: A poi is a light, circular ball attached to a cord that is twirled with the twist of the wrists in combinations of movements, around and against the hands and body. This example is a very rare type woven in muka (flax fibre) with a technique called knotless netting. It is called a poi awe, due to the presence of the dog-hair awe (tassles) attached as decoration.
