A bone carving is very special piece of personal artwork to wear yourself or give to someone you really care about. Many of the designs are based on New Zealand Maori tradition and mythology but local Maori artisan, Te Ngere Pehi, is an expert in custom artwork and design. Please contact him with questions and/or requests.

It is believed that a Maori bone carving, which is worn with respect or given and received with love, takes on part of the spirit of those who wear or handle it. In this way it becomes a spiritual link between people spanning time and distance. A carving that has been worn by family or tribal members over many generations contains the spirit of all of those people and is truly a great and powerful treasure…..
