Mangorā, ancient of the deep

After having so much fun building Valkas for BBCC #52, I decided to try another Bionicle creature. This one is meant to be some huge whale-shark behemoth. I wanted it to have an authentic 2001-2003 feel so I named it using the language of the Māori Indians. TLG used these natives language as their main inspiration for the toy line’s names (this eventually got them sued XD). I got the name “Mangorā” by combining the Māori terms “mangō” (shark) and tohorā (whale). Enjoy!
