WOOD MASTERS Wahaika Carved 763 (27cm)

Wood Masters | 21st Keys | Teko | Walking Sticks | Simply NZ | NZ The Gift

Hand carved here in New Zealand using traditional techniques. Made from Kauri and Paua Shell. Waha-ika means the mouth of the fish. If you look at the shape of the weapon it looks like the shape of a whales' lower jaw bone. Many waha-ika have a small figure carved on the side. This figure would be a guardian to the owner and would often be a venerated ancestor. Can be engraved for gifting.

Size: 27cm 
Hand Made in New Zealand

Wood Masters
Over the last forty years, Wood Masters has grown to represent New Zealand’s unique cultural heritage by successfully combining Whakairo (the Art of Māori Carving) with fine European craftsmanship. The locally trained carvers, using traditional techniques, work alongside other expert woodworkers with different technical skills. Made in Rotorua, New Zealand.
