An elaborately-carved wooden door lintel, in a rounded 'W' shape, with the wood pierced between the figures. There are eleven figures in total, all female. The main ones are a central humanoid figure and two manaia (more abstract bird-headed figures with prominent beaks) on each side, forming curved shapes. There are also three smaller humanoid figures on each side of the central one, The main humanoid figure and the two outermost manaia have shell-inlaid eyes with central pegs and the outer edges of the shell serrated. The eyes of some of the other figures probably had shell inlay originally, which has been lost. The innermost manaia have webbed feet. All the other figures have three-fingered hands and three-toed feet. The main humanoid figure has a rounded beaked mouth. Its tongue is positioned sideways, with a divided base and the tip emerging from the right side. There is a small plain spiral on its wide forehead. Its right hand is held to its chest and left hand held to its stomach. The other humanoid figures have beaked mouths with only slightly protruding tongues. The main surface pattern includes plain double spirals, mainly on the figures' shoulders and thighs, with three ritorito (fish-scale pattern) spirals on the manaia on the right side. Other patterns are rauponga (several parallel ridges and grooves with a notched ridge in between) and pakura (rolling spirals with crescents in between).
