Listing Detail Tabs

Hand Carved Bad Oscars on Recycled Rimu by Master Carver Jeff Bryan

Showing the diversity of the artist, this engine has been carved on a slab of totara, in a not infrequent departure from whakairo, or Maori carving for Jeff. The detail is there, the scale, the intricate workings of the engine are a match made in heaven for Jeff's intricate carvings.

Richard Hornsby & Sons was an engine and machinery manufacturer in Lincolnshire, England from 1828 until 1918. The company was a pioneer in the manufacture of the oil engine developed by Herbert Akroyd Stuart, which was marketed under the Hornsby-Akroyd name. The company developed an early track system for vehicles, selling the patent to Holt & Co. (predecessor to Caterpillar Inc.) in America.

This unique taonga, which means treasure in Maori, is perfect for the motorheads or petrolheads among us. It makes an interesting talking point, that's for sure.
