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.

Twist - Interconnected

The Twist, or Pikorua depicts the union of two becoming one. This can be the joining of two lives that have come together, the intertwining of entity’s, ideas, or aspects of yourself.

Alternatively, it can also represent the coming together and integration of our higher nature (e.g. our spiritual understanding of ourselves) and our conventional nature (worldly understanding of who we are as individuals). This coming together, or intertwining of such things bestows upon us a mental harmony and deep peace.

A relatively modern addition to traditional Māori carving, the twist shows us that the bonds we have must grow and evolve if they are to thrive. The twists come together at certain points, and at other points, they depart for a time before coming together at another level of the twist.

The lower half of 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. In this case, they also represent a journey. This is an internal spiritual journey towards attaining the realization of our ultimate nature.    

The name of this carving is ‘Interconnected’.

Hei konā rā (goodbye)
