Wood Art

Wood carving is a sacred art form for Maori and is used not only for decorative works but also for carving the giant canoes called Waka, weapons, fish hooks or matau, wall art, sacred storage boxes known as Wakahuia and personal jewelry such as necklaces.
Wood carvings is also used as a way of recording history and telling stories of great warriors, and ancient mythology.

For your convenience we have broken this gallery into four main sections based on the general style and meaning of the carvings displayed in each.
