Kowhaiwhai (curvilinear surface design) is the ancient art of painted traditions by Maori. As an art form, kowhaiwhai is distinctively Maori, most often seen on the meeting house ridgepole (tahuhu) and on the rafters (heke). Kowhaiwhai patterns show an emphasis on the use of forms that represent growth seeds, the uncurling of the young fern frond, young curled leaves, shoots and branches.
