The Manaia is said to be the messenger between the earthly world of mortals and the domain of the spirits. It is also a holder of great spiritual energy and is a guardian against evil.
The Manaia can be seen blended into many Maori designs such as the Matau (Hook) to depict its different powers and its interaction with the spirit or mortal worlds.
