Hi peters, I've contacted fi and also asked what the last word is on the front. I can see Maori Waka, but can only guess at the last word.

I have checked and the titian inscription was maori war canoe. I know there are many copies made and I am sure I have seen this version before but can't place it.
looks good too.

It looks like it says Maori Waka Taua as Tony has already suggested.

Woops it looks like you are going to have to click through the photos to find it !!!

Hi, The waka says Maori. Waka Taua. It is 28cm long and 12cm tall. It is the same size as the usual Brown waka with green base. Underneath Titian Studios S.104 is stamped into the base and also has Maori War Canoe New Zealand. Made in N.Z. This is written by hand onto a green painted panel. Isn't it just GORGEOUS!!! ( I sound like Dame Edna lol) I found this in an OP shop in the North of England ( via Ebay). Regards, Fi
