Pōhutukawa (New Zealand Christmas Tree) shaped cookie cutters
The Pōhutukawa for Māori is a sacred tree, legend tells of the young Māori warrior, Tawhaki and his attempt to find help in heaven to avenge his father's death. He subsequently fell to earth and the bright red flowers are said to represent his blood. Potentially the most famous pōhutukawa in Māori legend is a small, old tree near Cape Reinga where the spirits of the dead pass on their way to the next world.
Also known as the New Zealand Christmas tree, Pōhutukawa are often found in coastal areas and are well known for their large, red flowers on display around Christmas time. The Pōhutukawa cookie cutter represents the flower of the tree in all its beautiful whero/red glory.
