Tekoteko style maori Sculpture from Rotorua new Zealand
Object Type: Sculpture
Locality: Rotorua New Zealand
Height: 38 cm
Description: This is a good example of a Maori sculpture made in Rotorua for sale to early travellers. It has wonderful Moko tattoo carvings on the face and lips and I am sure someone with more knowledge than me will be able to track down the artist. Genitals are clearly shown and the body has been adzed and has a great patina.
