9781869412234: Treasured taonga: Traditional and contemporary techniques and concepts in bone carving

When man first roughly hewed a weapon with which to hunt, carving was born. The early Maori arrived in Aotearoa in their carved canoes, bringing their carving skills with them. Specific styles and designs developed, and cultural traditions grew up around this valued artform. Ropata Davis looks at this heritage of Maori carving and discusses ways of incorporating such richness in modern designs. He describes the practicalities of carving today- preparing the material, tools, special techniques, and design considerations, as well as how to sell your work- while maintaining a distinctively Maori perspective.
