Artifacts, or artefacts, are defined as objects made by a person, such as a tool or a decoration, especially one that is of historical interest.  These artifacts are New Zealand made clubs, taiaha and waka, replicas of those used in Maori wars.  Shipped worldwide from New Zealand.
These artefacts include greenstone mere, as well as carved wood taiaha, patu, mere, tewhatewha, wahaika and kotiate. 
These items are now more popular than a 21st Key, as well as being popular business and corporate gifts.  They are also a wonderful souvenir of New Zealand.
The greenstone mere are made in New Zealand from pounamu, our native greenstone jade.  The rest are made in New Zealand from various timbers.
Choose from club type artefacts, including the wahaika, patu, and kotiate, traditionally used in close hand to hand combat. Or the larger tewhatewha and taiaha.  Warriors trained for many years in the art of mau rakau, learning to parry, feint and strike.  
Also available here are replica Maori waka (canoe), some with paddles.

Kia ora Lesley,
I am very pleased to say that a few days ago I received my parcel.  It made my day.  It was great to receive a few things from home - yes I am a Kiwi.  Living in Holland for the past 37 years.  Once a Kiwi always a Kiwi.

Hi, just wanted to let you know that the NZ Santa arrived today.  The Santa is for a friend who is a marathon swimmer.  She swam the Cook Straits a few years ago.  We were in NZ to cheer her on.  I got a small Santa then and gave to her.  A friends dog eat it and so I am very happy to be able to replace that Santa with another.
