This platter is huge and an absolute beauty! The fact that "The Long White cloud" is only visible when the piece is turned over adds a touch of sophistication to this already splendid art work. Nothing like a little surprise that is hidden away. 

For non-Kiwis, "The Long White Cloud" is  the translation of the Maori name for New Zealand - Aotearoa

Black Maire is a New Zealand Native timber and is exceptionally hard. Maori used to use this wood to fashion their weapons from. Black Maire works of this size are very rare.

This piece will be a fine addition to any collector of New Zealand wood turned art from rare native timber.
