Large Wahaika and Base
Large Wahaika and Base

This stunning piece makes a great ornament, trophy or presentation piece. This type of weapon is ceremonial and practical. Waha-ika means the mouth of the fish. If you look at the shape of the weapon it looks like the shape of a whales' lower jaw bone. Many waha-ika have a small figure carved on the side. This figure would be a guardian to the owner and would often be a venerated ancestor.

Our Large Wahaika is made from Kauri and hand carved here in New Zealand by local carvers using traditional techniques. It sits on a matching base.

To avoid offending any Iwi or tribal groups, the designs are generic and representative of common Maori and Island motifs.

Wahaika Size: 45 cm x 13 cm x 4 cm
Base Size: 50 cm x 14 cm x 4 cm
