Tangaroa - Guardian of the Ocean
Tangaroa is a deity described in Maori traditions as the kaitiaki (guardian) of all oceans and waters. He is one of the children of Ranginui (the sky father) and Papatuanuku (the earth mother), from whom life originates. This set was design by Maori artists Kaaterina and Tai Kerekere.
