More about Kawe from the Auckland Museum:
"Wooden image named Kawe de Hine Aligi, a god image from Nukuoro, a Polynesian outlier atoll in the Caroline Islands. The surrounding peoples are basically matrilineal and this influence could be apparent in this, the largest figure from the group. About a dozen other figures are known, ranging in size from five feet to fifteen inches. Most are small.
Kawe stood in the Amalau, a godhouse belonging to the community and is reported to have had human sacrifices offered before her."
