A thick earthenware platter with turned up ends. The face of the platter has two light blue raised areas that are printed with Māori motifs which symbolise the legend of Maui trapping the sun. The top edge of the raised area is decorated with inverted drip-like patterns which depict pallisading. In the right side of the platter is a vertical band that interrupts the raised blue areas and features stylised circular motifs in relief that represent the mudpools at Rotorua.
