This beautifully carved wood New Zealand Maori Mask has been made from a native timber, with Paua shell (abalone) eyes. Measures approximately 20cm. It comes with a card detailing its origins, and a hole in the back for you to hang it on your wall. Proudly made in New Zealand.
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.
This is a mask with cut back eyes and a flattened v-shaped forehead. The weku is most often found on the front of the meeting house below the teko teko.
