Wood Carvings

Description

Over 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. 

Wahaika is a type of traditional Māori hand weapon. Wahaika are shorclub-like weapons usually made of wood or whalebone and are used for thrusting and striking in close-quarterhand-to-hand fighting.
