A Wheku is a carved representation of a human face - with slanting eyes and commonly seen as a koruru, the head of an ancestor (tupuna) or guardian (kaitiaki), depicted at the gable of a wharenui (meeting house).

A wheku is seen to be more spiritual (wairua) than physical and can be gifted to give strength and courage. This piece features NZ Pāua Eyes, teeth and protruding tongue.
