Bone Heru Feather with Black Lashing
Bone Heru Feather with Black Lashing.
Maori Bone Heru Combs are commonly worn during kapa haka performances, as well as to dress up a pinned up hair do.
Made from cow bone.
Historically, Heru combs were traditionally worn by Maori to fasten their long hair into a top knot.
Heru indicated the rank of the wearer and were often carved from a single piece of wood, whale bone or were made of many individual wooden prongs intricately bound together.
We photograph each piece but a slight colour variation may occur.
