The making of a memorial

TEKOTEKO / TIKI

Here you can view the process of making this beautiful memorial and read the story and inspiration behind the design.

This was my second Lucas Thompson designed headstone. It is a freestanding Tekoteko/Tiki in traditional Hauraki style.

 

The sheer size presented the first of many challenges. Starting with a 1.5 tonne block gradually removing a lot of stone to reveal the Tekoteko within.

 

The Plaque sits within the kupenga (net) and held by the Tekoteko.
