Maori taumata atua godstick from New Zealand

Maori taumata atua godstick from New Zealand. A Maori Tohunga, when wanting to talk to a god, asked the god to come and rest in his symbol, the sculpted resting place of the god the taumata atua. This godstick, made from Manuka wood and found in 1973 on the shores of Akaroa Harbour, Bank's Peninsula, after a flood, is the largest yet found at two feet long and weighing over two pounds, it is also one of the oldest. The fact that it ends in a penis suggests it was a baton, they are common in Polynesia, and not a stick to be put into the ground.
