From the Bay of Plenty Times this write up.
The central figure is Kinonui, a 16th century ancestor who held mana whenua in Tauranga, 18 generations removed from Mr Kohu. Flanking Kinonui are his two sons, Kinomoerua and Kinotaraia. Carved on top of Kinonui's head is Rongotane, the supreme being and greatest son of the sky father. Under Kinonui is Ranginui.The other carvings represent the palisades of a fighting pa. Otumoetai held the distinction of never being conquered by enemies, including seeing off Nga Puhi chief Hone Heke.
