Taonga are considered as things ‘precious’ not only because of the quality of their craftsmanship but they suggest something more than just mere objects.  However, work from the past is not succeeded by more recent approaches and styles, rather, it sustains life in the present, not merely in a metaphoric sense because it retains visual appeal, but in the stronger idea that tupuna continue to be incarnated in taonga, not merely represented by them. Heiwari Johnson lives in Kohukohu, Hokianga.
