Just arrived in our store these beautiful hand carved 'wheku' rings. These are carved from deer antler with pāua eyes - they look fantastic worn.
Wheku, meaning 'carved face', generally depicts the face of an ancestor.
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. Today the carved wheku is increasingly seen in other places - pendants, tattoos, and in this beautiful ring.
