Andrew Doughty is a New Zealand based Bone and Stone carver and artist. Each carving is handcrafted with love. His wish is to create carvings that communicate peace and hope.

Four Seasons

To all things there is a season. A time to plough and prepare the ground, a time for sowing, a time for waiting for the harvest to ripen and a time for the harvest. This carving represents these four seasons. Each hole in the carving is a symbolic progression leading to the next stage. While the curl of the bone is like a leaf that is subject to the various seasons of nature.  

 
 

Four Seasons



This is a symbol of strength, wisdom and peace of mind.

The carving is adorned with Koru. The koru symbol is common in New Zealand and is inspired by the unfurling of the new fern fronds. Meanings associated with this are new growth, new beginnings and awakening. Some of the Koru are rising on the carving and others are descending. 

 

 


 

 

 

This is the way of all things. When we accept this, and understand how all things have a time of coming into being, abiding and then passing away, we have an ability to be more peaceful and realistic about how things actually are. This is wisdom.

Hei konā rā (goodbye)
