These ātaahua sculptures are handmade here in Christchurch by a local ceramic artist. Each one is completely unique - the clay is sculpted, fired, glazed, and fired again to produce these gorgeous figurines which carry a grace, strength and mana of their own. Some of them have a sweet Pēpi on their backs, some are awake and some are peacefully asleep.
Note that as they are fired twice at high temperatures (once before and once after glazing) there are fine hairline cracks on some of these sculptures.
Each one stands between 10cm and 14cm high - see number on each for ease of ordering.
