Description

Roi Toia and Todd Couper are exceptional contemporary carvers, based in Rotorua, New Zealand. Their works come out of tribal histories, cosmology and a keen spiritual awareness; these are contemporary carvings that blossom from knowledge of ancient lore, primarily Maori, but open to and encompassing other cultures. The sensitive photography of the pieces in this book serves to highlight the spirituality and beauty of the carvings. Each work is accompanied by an explanation of genesis and form and materials used. This book is a result of 35 years of collective experience actively working within the confines of the carving fraternity. Roi and Todd are continually developing their artistic styles, and are rapidly becoming nationally and internationally renowned, fulfilling commissions in the domestic, USA, Canadian and European and Asians markets.
