Kowhaiwhai are traditional patterns characterized by their flowing, curvilinear appearance. These patterns are a prominent feature in M?ori art and decoration, most commonly associated with the painted adornments on the rafters of wharenui (M?ori meeting houses). They hold deep symbolic meaning, representing various natural elements, stories, tribal lineage, and other cultural concepts important to M?ori.
