STRONG SHOULDERS - we carved this piece to symbolise the role that our ancestors play in who we are - our beliefs, our ethos, our history.

This is a bone figurine carved from deer antler and inspired by traditional carving found throughout Aotearoa and the South Pacific. It is a reflection of ancestry and the strength derived from where we come from and who we are. 

STRONG SHOULDERS is a visually striking piece which will appeal to those of you who are fascinated by traditional art.

The Wheku is generally found at the apex of the gable on a Wharenui, the Maori meeting house, and symbolises an important ancestor after whom the house was named.
