Pounamu (New Zealand Jade) Maori Toki by master artist Tyson Lynes. The toki is the blade of and axe with which the great war canoes were carved from giant trees so is said to represent a crafts person or artist.
Moko is the Maori art of facial or body tattooing. It is an expression of personal, social and tribal identity. Dating back hundreds of years, the art form is undergoing a resurgence as New Zealand's Maori reassert their cultural tradition.
