This fellow with tattos on his face, another warrior, further up in the ranks than a warrior with no tattoos.

Not maori

Amazing anatomy. Very, very good work. I feel moved however so say I think he looks african, decidedly, rather than maori. Just my opinion though.

Hi Tania, I dont know how he manages it, they are so life like, so much work goes into them, he is very talented all right.

Thankyou lkka for looking in and kind comments, I'm afraid I only took the photograph of this work, the work was done by Nigel Ogle whom owns the museum, and yes it must have taken hours.

Lorraine, thank you of this wonderful work, it seems nature! I can realize, how many hours of work you did!

Thankyou Golda and plumeriagrl for looking in and the kind comments, I have to admit I wouldent like to run into this fellow on a dark night, He'd scare the daylights out of ya, I think thats the intention. I'm not sure what the figures are made from, but I'm sure the moulds are cast from local people, I'll try and find out for you and come back on that one.

What great trible art this man has on his face. What are this figures made out of by the way.

Looks like a pretty serious fellow.That face tattoo represents quite a few hours of painful work.Ouch!Great shots of these guys.A glimpse into a culture that is so unlike our own.
