Historical Notes: A cast of the pare in the doorway of this house is illustrated in "Carved Maori houses of the Eastern districts" by W J Phillipps (Records of the Dominion Museum, vol 1, no 2, October 1944, plate 26 figure 1). The cast, made by Augustus Hamilton and subsequently broken, is described as being from the original house at Te Hauke. This is possibly the house named Kokiri which, according to Roger Neich in "Painted Histories" (AUP, 1993, p 300) stood in front of Kahuranaki.
