Jon-Paul Kaiser 36” Maori Warrior Qee

Toy2R - Jon-Paul Kaiser 36” Maori Warrior Qee

The fourth design in Toy2R’s upcoming 36" Artist Qee Collection has debuted online and it’s awesome! Jon-Paul Kaiser chose to honor the fierce Maori Warriors with entry in this series by incorporating their unique tribal tattoos. Maori tattoos are among the most distinctive tattoos in the world and have their own identity amongst the Polynesian tattoos. Tattooing is a sacred art among the Maori and is very beautiful, consisting of curved shapes and spirals in intricate patterns. Tā moko is the permanent body and face marking by the Māori. Traditionally it is distinct from tattoo and tatau in that the skin is carved by uhi (chisels) rather than punctured. This left the skin with grooves, rather than a smooth surface.

Standing a whopping 3 feet tall, Jon-Paul Kaiser’s Maori Warrior XL Scale Qee has a limited edition run size of just 36 pieces and will retail for $2,800.
