Te Wairua O Tupuna.

Latest piece made from Mammoth Ivory and paua inlay.

 

This is a vessel. A shell waiting to be filled. This wheku-style mask will represent the recipient and is to passed on to future generations. These make beautiful heirlooms as the oils pass into the taonga from the skin. Making a part of you in the piece. The person you pass it onto does the same thing until the spirits of all that have worn it become housed within the taonga. A true treasure indeed.

 

Thank you for your time
