This decanter was produced for Jim Beam. It depicts Hongi Hika (1772 – 1828), a New Zealand Māori rangatira (chief) and war leader of the Ngāpuhi iwi (tribe). He was a pivotal figure in the period when Māori history emerged from myth and oral tradition and Pākehā (Europeans) began to settle rather than just visit. He is 14.5" tall when on music base. Standing next to him is a large Maori Tiki.
