The kiwi is shown on many New Zealand spoons. The discoloration is from the scanner. This spoon was made in Germany for resale in NZ.

This is a Maori Tiki  This was the name given to the first man on earth. Where the hand is, is where the strength is. The mouth - having the ability to communicate, the heart - pure and loving, the loins - fertility.  (thank you Margo)
