I made the key for my youngest son to symbolize his coming of age. Only ceremonial these days but a nice old tradition to uphold.
The bone carving tells his story so far. There is the Maori Tiki face to represent our country’s culture with a tongue representing a European wood chisel, as he is a furniture maker by trade. On the top of the head of the Tiki is the handle of a Japanese chisel to recognise the Asian influence on his woodworking endeavors.
