Vakama's foundry

Vakama's foundry was one of a number of forges in Ta-Metru.1, 2 Vakama used this work area to forge Kanohi masks.2


Vakama's Foundry was located in the southern part of Ta-Metru.3

Vakama's foundry had a forge which he used to heat and soften Kanoka disks before shaping them into masks. Far below was a pool of molten protodermis. This was the raw material that was fed into the forge to be shaped into disks, and later into masks, if the grade of disk was high enough. All around was a series of interlocking catwalks, with a great crane suspended above the center of the molten vat.4
