AMBUSH - a surprise attack by someone lying in wait in a concealed position.


A delicately carved matau, made by hand from gorgeous New Zealand flower jade.

This carving exhibits a high level of craftsmanship and is a great example of Ross Crump's skill in carving detailed pieces from this tough New Zealand jade.

A very fine tribute to the matau - which traditionally symbolises a leader, someone who will protect and provide. Perfect to express love, recognise an important anniversary or long-standing friendship, or perhaps to seal an engagement. A fabulous way to ambush someone special!
