Many of these carvings are special pieces created by guest artists while some are very special works which have been kept by the artists in their own private collections until now. Some of these special carvings have already been given names by the artists who created them, often telling a powerful story.
Some of these pieces are samples, test, short run or end of line pieces from various carvers that we will not added to our main stock catalogue so they are offered here at clearance pricing until sold out.

The carving of large fishing lures made from wood with bone or shell barbs
and sometimes with paua shell inlays became an art for ancient Maori.

They were trolled behind waka (canoes) using lines of finely plaited muka (flax)
and used to catch fast moving fish such as kahawai, bonito and barracouta.

These pieces can be worn as pendants, displayed on a table or even framed.

Deer Antler Carvings

Carved from base or crown of the naturally caste off deer antlers. The antlers are dropped by the deer at the end of the mating season so no animals have been harmed at all.
Most of these carvings also come with the original crown from which each was carved. The crowns make great display stands and a place to rest the carving when it is not being worn.
Measurements shown are for the carvings only and don't include the size of the crown.

Removable Antler Crown Display Stand Included With Many Carvings
