The Bone Art Place

Wood carvings is a huge part of Maori life and a sacred skill passed down through the generations.
Here you will see a collection of carved necklaces and wearable art showcasing Maori carving styling and craft as well as some exotic woods.
Most of these wood carvings are in the form of stylized fish hooks or Matau reflecting the respect and reverence Maori have for the ocean and it’s creatures

By virtue of the woods used and the styling,  these pieces are all one of a kind originals so will be removed from our gallery permanently when sold
