KAURI · The lord of the forest
Tane Mahuta in Maori means Millennial Kauri, which is the native biggest and most famous tree of New Zealand, and also the oldest wood of the world. Grown up in the Jurassic Period these vegetal giants have been cut down by enormous natural disasters more than 50.000 years ago thus remained buried under meters of mud and unchanged until our days. Logs up to 70 meters of length and 9 meters of diameter are brought to light, they are true natural sculptures ready to be transformed into unique design pieces
