A 21st present, specially made..
This is a photo of a tekoteko, carved out of totara, a soft wood.
It is carved in the Te Arawa style.
This was especially carved as a 21st present. We sat down with the mother and talked about the type of person the recipient was, and as he loves the sea, we felt it appropriate to carve something representing the sea.
Note the fish that is held in the hands.
