Maori art and Maori gifts

Maori art and Maori gifts on our Aotearoa site are created by our Maori artists and Maori wood carvers.

Our beautiful authentic Maori art, contemporary Maori art and Maori gifts made by some of New Zealand’s top artists. And yes, Aotearoa.co.nz is very proud to feature these beautiful artworks.

The koru (Maori word for fern frond) can be found in many New Zealand made gifts and artworks. Koru is a spiral shape based on the unfurling of a silver fern frond and symbolises new life, new beginnings, growth and movement.

Many artists implement the koru design in their New Zealand works.

Aeon Giftware

Contemporary Maori art and Maori gifts. Beautiful and distinctive New Zealand wooden souvenirs and gifts: Maori waka (canoe), Maori heru (hair combs) and framed Maori tiki, Maori fishhooks, manaia and weru. Also the Maori wall hangers and wall art is quite popular…

From Aeon: “Our range of contemporary ethnic New Zealand wooden souvenirs and wooden gifts are inspired by our Maori heritage. We are a passionate bunch of kiwis who are proud of who we are and what we do!

That passion to create “works of art” that portray the beauty of Maori carving and design has fueled what started as a solitary coaster set over 15 years ago into the extensive range of gifts & woodware that Aeon is now able to offer you”.

Korowai

And we offer beautiful feather korowai and faux-fur korowai.

Though “korowai” is the term that is generally accepted today to describe a “Maori cloak” it was in fact a particular kind of Maori cloak, emphasis placed more on the creation of an elaborate “taniko” border.

“Kahu huruhuru” is the term used for a feather cloak

“Kahu kura” a red feather cloak.
