New Zealand Bone Carvings

Traditional and contemporary New Zealand bone carving by Andrew Doughty. Each handcrafted creation is unique, is made with love, and has been blessed. Andrew is Christchurch based.


Each carving tells a story...

Andrew Doughty is a New Zealand based artisan. Each carving is handcrafted with love. His wish is to create carvings that communicate peace and hope. Each Taonga (treasure) comes with a detailed description of the meaning and is well presented in a gift box. It also includes a certificate of authenticity. 

I sincerely hope you enjoy the carvings and over time come to fully understand all the various layers of meaning imbued in these creations. I wish you and your family the deepest peace and happiness.
— Andrew Doughty


The Taonga has arrived and I am absolutely in awe of its beauty, intricacy and simplicity and the typed explanation you have sent is really really meaningful. You have such incredible talent!
— Brendon Parata


No Two Are Exactly The Same...

Commision

This carving was commissioned by strong man Levi Vaoga... 

Levi represented New Zealand 11 times at the World Strong Man competition! He was also the face of Mitre 10 for many years (Big is Good).

This carving has a mixture of Celtic, Samoan and Maori cultural influences and depicts his life story. It is steeped in meaning...

His amazing life story can be seen on You Tube here...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4PFSycg2bE

Kī of life

This Taonga is called ‘kī of Life’. This is a commission by a very special Kaumatua for his son's 21st. I am very privileged to make this for him... 


Archaeological evidence shows us that bone implements for both functional purposes and personal adornment have been with us since the development of 'civilization'.  


Free Lifetime Cord Replacement Guarantee

If you want the cord to be changed for any of my Taonga, let me know and I will replace the cord absolutely free of charge. - Postage or courier fees may still apply.
