Note: The first of three upright posts that support the tāhuhu (ridge pole) of a large whare tupuna (ancestral house) or whare runanga (tribal council house), providing structural stability and supporting the roof. They usually incorporate carved figures, often a significant ancestor of the tribe. When seen in museums today, the figures have usually been sawn off the pole.
