Welcome to ToaCarving

Kia Ora and welcome,Hi and welcome to my shop, Here I offer my handmade Bone carvings based on the cultural designs of the the New Zealand Maori with my own stylized twist and creativeness, each piece is carved by a me(Marcus) a New Zealand born Maori artist, each design is one of a kind so what you see is what you get, there are no repeats.Now for a little history on the Maori:The Maori expressed their stories, legends and desires according to their carvings each form has a symbolic character. A Taonga(treasure) was normally passed down to future generations in the belief that the wearer's spirit was contained in the piece.I hope you find a Taonga that will be a part of you.If you have any questions about any of my pieces please feel free to contact me.If you like you can check out some more of my work on my website www.toacarving.weebly.comKia mau ki to MaoritangaNever forget your cultureAll carvings are made from 100% beef bone unless other wise stated.
