This design originates from the realm of Tangaroa. It captures the effect of the fast sweeping currents of Te-Moana-nui-a-Kiwa (Pacific ocean). The design symbolizes speed, agility and endurance. It was used to adorn the hull of Waka-Taua (war canoes). The pattern was also used to moko the thighs of warriors to enhance their warfare skills.
