Image No. Pou-Tangaroa-1
Pou Tangaroa (God and protector of the sea) at Pukerua Bay, near Wellington,
This carving was completed by craftsman carver, Hermann Salzmann, with help
from other Ngati Toa carvers. This magnificent pou is 6 meters high, is
carved from macrocarpa, and weighs over two tonnes. The Pou Tangaroa was
unveiled and blessed at a dawn ceremony on 1 December 2012.
Image captured with the full frame 24 megapixel Sony A99 digital camera.
To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site,
they should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has
been reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels, from the
original width of at least 4900 pixels (or 6000 pixels from my full frame
cameras). In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
