carving and kapahaka

Each monday some of the class goes to kapahaka and some of Nic's class comes to us while he is taking kapahaka so we are learning about different aspects of maori culture too. For the last few weeks we have been making carvings in pumice of different maori symbols.
We chose one that had meaning to us and then carved it from pumice. Some of the pumice was very soft and some was almost like stones. We used ice block sticks, spoons and sandpaper to make the shapes. Then we mounted them on painted wooden bases like real carvings.
