The sails!

I've never heard of waka before and did a little digging... very cool!

How beautiful

How beautiful. We see the waka from our house, but they are too far away to see the beautiful details, like the amazing sails. Thank you for posting!

Yes, the sails set me to wondering whose moko they've chosen to use here. An actual person, a representation of deity, a personification of the vessel itself?
