Collection: Weapons & Sculptures

The Maori are known worldwide as master carvers in all sorts of native woods.
Native trees have been used to carve everything from the giant Waka or sea-going canoes to totems, decorations for meeting houses, and weapons right down to fine sacred vessels and spears for hunting birds or eels.  

Maori were fierce warriors and in the thick jungles of New Zealand this meant close  hand to hand fighting with short clubs and staffs (Taiaha) was common and developed into an art form learned from a young age.

In this gallery, you will see a wide selection of wood carvings depicting traditional Maori weapons and sculptures

These pieces are a mix of hand and machine crafted solid wood and modern laser cut or etched designs.
