Maori Rock Craving Lake Taupo

English below

 

Die Maori Rock Cravings beim Lake Taupo ist die Attraktion schlecht hin.  Ihr könnt sie nur übers Wasser erreichen, was natürlich nicht so leicht ist. Da es aber genug Gesellschaften gibt (von Segelbotten, Kayak, Jetski über eine altes Schiff) von Booten, könnt ihr problemlos dahin schippern.

Kosten liegen so zwischen 20-40 NZD$. (Kleiner Tipp ist book me wieder). Da findet ihr wieder einige Deals vor.

Das Maori Rock Craving ist ca. um die 14 Meter hoch und wurde 1980 fertiggestellt.


The Maori Rock Cravings at Lake Taupo are the attraction of badly going. It was not so easy. As there are enough companies (from sailing bots, kayaks, jetski over an old ship) from boats, you can easily go there.

Costs are thus between 20-40 NZD $. (Small tip is the book me again). There you find some offers again.

The Maori Rock Craving is about 14 meters high and was completed in 1980.

Digital representation of Ngatoroirangi by Sarah Turner


  1. TikiTiki is the top knot that sits at the very top of Ngatoroirangi’s head. This represents Ngatoroirangi’s ability to communicate to the highest god in the Maori culture – lo Matua Kore.
  2. Matakite spiritual eye representing the sixth sense. It is depicted here in the centre of the forehead because Ngatoroirangi was a visionary who could divine information from the past, present and future.
  3. Aho/Mauri starts at the tip of the nose and runs up the centre of the nose, through the forehead to the bottom of the TikiTiki. This represents the connection to the spiritual realm.
  4. Te Haa is the spirit wind and is depicted on the bridge of Ngatoroirangi’s nose. This represents discernment and intuition. Ngatoroirangi was a master of this.
  5. Whatukura is the design on the upper lip of Ngatoroirangi’s face. It depicts the angel that represents the White Kotuku, the most sacred bird in Maori culture. The White Kotuku carried the three baskets of knowledge from the spiritual realm to earth.
  6. Matakokiri is the design that runs over Ngatoroirangi’s top and bottom lip. It is symbolic of the waka (canoe) belonging to Puhaorangi, a powerful god from the celestial realm, and ancestor of Ngatoroirangi’s.
  7. Mareikura is depicted on Ngatoroirangi’s chin. It symoblises the Hokioi (Haast Eagle) who is the messenger between God and man. These two angel symbols (including Whatakura) on Ngatoroirangi’s face gave him the highest rank of a Tohunga Ahurei – high priest.
