A hand carved traditional Māori Flute. We've named this piece KORIMAKO after our Bellbird which has one of the most beautiful songs you will ever hear.
These are called 'Nguru' and are one of the smaller traditional flute designs. These are carved with a short bore which is semi-enclosed. This causes the air to swirl inside the flute producing a soft, haunting sound.
This piece is fully functioning and can be played (if you know how). Equally it is a beautiful piece of traditional art.
This piece is a work of art - the sides are decorated with two similar, but individual manaia, and the bottom with a tiki. The manaia eyes are New Zealand pāua shell.
We have taken a short video of this piece rotating so please take a look to view the beauty of this piece in 3D.
This one only collectors item has been carved from natural bone and has been stained with a homemade dye made by Yuri. It is signed with the Artists' mark.
