Carvers create unique stone to celebrate Matariki

  • Auckland

Ten Manukau local carvers are creating a unique portable stone Māori lunar calendar to celebrate Matariki. 

This will be a part of the Rockstars Carving Symposium, where 12 sculpted pou will be made from Oamaru stone.

The pou will go on to be used as a teaching resource for the community.

The symposium will end with the display of each pou at the Te Mata o Rehua Maramataka Cultural Market Saturday in Manukau.
