Handcarved mask by Jason Holder - Maniapoto Iwi.

The moko (tattoo) explained: 

The four lines on the forehead equal Ahupuri.
The nine thorns on the nose equal Patea-Ngati Ruanui iwi (his fathers tribe).
The pattern behind the cheek represents Taranaki iwi, and Tuwharetoa of Taupo iwi and Kahungunu of Hawkes Bay iwi. 
He is a warrior.
He has government of a region and has risen to the rank from a warrior.
He has married into the third line - this confirms his own rise.
His rank is granted by the tiapuru.
His mothers iwi is Kahungunu.
Kohere, protector of his land and his people.
