This board is dedicated to my father who was a master wood carver and artist. He forever left the thundering passion for art in our family legacy. He will always be missed.
MAORI: wood carved sculpture ( New Zealand) Maori wood carving (whakairo rakau) is probably the most renowned and well known type of Maori art. Meeting houses, war canoes (waka) but also smaller items such as weapons, sacred boxes and small statues were ornamented with wood carvings. This carving clearly displays the tribal traditions of body decoration- tatooes.
