Product Description

Hand Carved 21st Wahaika on Base

This carved Maori Wahaika Club on stand which makes a great gift for a 21st birthday.

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 venerated ancestor.

Proudly made in New Zealand from tulip wood, a sustainably harvested hardwood. There are always very slight differences in colours and carvings of hand carved products.

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

Engraving on the front of the base stand can be done either with a Golden Plaque or Laser Engraved.
