Fish hooks from New Zealand
Maori tradition of bone carving goes back centuries to a time when whaling was a
way of life, and mankind was in balance with nature. The Maori only use bone
from whales that have unfortunately been beached and died on New Zealand's
rugged coasts. With unsurpassed craftsmanship, our carvers, have produced in
bone some of the beautiful and meaningful images from the Maori culture. These
pieces have been so successful that they are very popular for the tourist as
well as the local.
artwork has a very special feel about it, unlike anything else you will ever
experience. Its milky white appearance and soft flowing lines are just the
start. It is soft and warm to the touch yet the finish is like polished glass,
it seems to blend with your body and become a part of you, especially when
worn against your skin. Over a period of time the carving absorbs oils from
your skin and changes color to a very light honey gold. The Maori believe this
to be the carving taking on some of your spirituality or essence and thus
truly becoming a part of the wearer.
