This unique statue is located between the city center and the waterfront, at the entrance to Civic Square from the city to the Sea Bridge. This is the 'split pyramid' that you can walk through before you go down the stairs to Civic Square. The paved walkway between the two sides of the pyramid represents Māui's fishing line, unravelling from the mountain to the sea. Te Aho a Māui means the fishing line of Māui, who is a hero from Māori mythology. Certainly worth a photo stop.

Maui's fishing line
May 2019
Between Civic Square and the City to Sea Bridge is an impressive large pyramid sculpture known as Te Aho a Maui, it represents the Maori creation myth where Maui crafts a fishing hook made from the jawbone of his grandmother and hauls up the North Island of Aotearoa (New Zealand). Our walking tour guide mentioned that the sculpture represents New Zealand with Cook Strait in between.
