This Pūtātara - Maori Trumpet was hand carved. The mouth piece is made from native New Zealand timber, stained and intricately carved.  This piece measures 33 x 12 x 11 mm.

The Maori Trumpet is customarily made with a carved wooden mouthpiece and a bell made from New Zealand's small native conch or non-native triton shell washed up on the shore. The carrying sound of the shell trumpet could be heard over a long distance, so it is ideal for signalling or ceremonial purposes.
