|Toitu Te Mana Maori|
Tane started adding arms and legs to the figure. Then he fashioned the head, the hands and the feet. Finally Tane shaped her sexual organs. When at last Tane was happy with the final shape he decided to breathe life into her body. Tane took a deep breath. He then pressed his nostrils to her nostrils and began to blow life giving breath through his nostrils into hers. This is actually the origin of the hongi and it remains as an important part of our culture today. After a while the female figure began to breath and slowly opened her eyes. Life seeped slowly into every inch of her body and soon she was able to sit and look upon the world of light.
