Waka Moenga Carved Rosewood Casket
This beautiful Waka Moenga (sleeping vessel) carved Rosewood casket was created by our team of talented craftsmen and the carvers at Pūkaha National Wildlife Centre’s Whare Whakairo (carving studio). The components are cut in our Pahiatua factory then transported to Mt Bruce for carving. Each piece is lovingly hand-carved during the following week. The traditional Māori Puhoro design symbolises a speedy journey to the next realm.
Once complete, the carved components are transferred back to Pahiatua to be assembled and given a stunning glossed rosewood finish.
This majestic casket sparkles with a deep red glow when exposed to the sunlight; the ultimate sleeping vessel ready to embark on its next journey.
