Rei Niho - Stained Deer Antler Tooth Pendant

Sands Carving Studio


Rei puta are chiefly taonga traditionally carved from the teeth of Tohorā (whale). Rei niho carved from pounamu maintains the beauty of the traditional form, symbolising the intimate connection between Maori and Tohorā.

This piece was carved by Alex Sands and measures 86 x 19 mm.
