The Story
Māori lived and worked by the Maramataka, the nights of the moon, you may recognise it as the Lunar calendar. Times for planting, fishing and other activities were governed by the moon. Tangaroa ā Mua is the quarter moon, A good day for fishing, particularly for Inanga (whitebait). From here to the dark moon, it is the best time for weeding.


The finer points

  • We make your Tangaroa-a-mua taonga to order.  Individually hand-carved just for you.
  • Precious things take time – please allow up to 14 days from your order to completion of your taonga.  If you need your taonga urgently please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
  • Please remember that pounamu is a natural material so every taonga we make from this stone will be distinct due to the unique variations within the stone.
  • We gather the pounamu ourselves, so the type of pounamu we have available to us is always changing depending on what the awa brings to us.  If you see something you love, to avoid disappointment we recommend you take the opportunity to purchase it while you can as we cannot guarantee the same colour pounamu will always be available to us.
