DescriptionOver the last 40 years, Wood Masters has grown to represent New Zealand's unique cultural heritage by successfully combining Whakairo (The Art of Maori carving) with fine European craftsmanship. The locally trained carvers, using traditional techniques, work alongside other expert woodworkers with different technical skills.
Concern for the environment and the sense of Kaitiakitanga (stewardship) continues to guide the careful selection of renewable timbers from the sustainably managed forests and the handling of waste products.
Wooden wahaika are often carved with intricate designs. In addition to being a fighting weapon, rangatira would hold wahaika during ceremonies and speeches, especially if they wanted people to pay attention to something important.
Special wahaika would only be given to people with considerable ranking in the Māori tribal structure
