Waka Stern Large
The waka sternpost, or Taurapa, would have once stood vertically at the stern of a great waka taua (war canoe). To carve a waka taua took great skill, and canoe-makers acquired great mana (prestige) and reputations as priests and craftsmen for their ritual and technical expertise.

This wooden Taurapa is beautifully carved with accents of natural New Zealand paua and sits on a base, which can be engraved if desired. Including the base it stands 27 cm high.

This product is 100% New Zealand made, constructed by kiln dried native timber and paua and is exportable.

We can do a combination of Paua and plain engraving - eg: a date often looks better smaller and in plain engraving underneath a name space permitting.
