This is a Fascinating Carved Wood Figure from the Kauri Islands, by the People Related to the Maori of New Zealand. To carve a wood statue one has to fell a tree, but in New Zealand the Waipoua forest is where the legends of gods, myths and true spiritual entities live. The shaman would go into a trance and call on his spirit helpers to assist him. When entering the trance, art forms would be created to have the power to connect the individuals to their sense of identity which empowers and evokes their spirits. They felt that the art illuminated the soul and enlivened their emotion. This ritual would involve repetitive sing and dancing and would have a mesmerizing atmosphere that left its carvers, dancers also in a trance like state. This is rare and unique carved statue and would be a wonderful addition to your collection or home. Each Trance figure is one of a kind.
