Small Copper Weta

$25.00 NZD

Made by Wellington artist John Rook, this masterfully crafted Small Copper Weta has been created entirely from twisted, turned and soldered copper wire.


Wētā are incredible looking creatures endemic to New Zealand. They range in size, but with their big bodies, spiny legs, and curved tusks, they are one of New Zealand's most iconic and recognisable creepy-crawlies. John has masterfully captured their appearance using nothing but copper wire.


  • Decorative wētā made from twisted copper wire
  • This product is not a toy, and is for decorative purposes only
  • Large size also available
  • Made in Wellington, New Zealand


The Small Copper Weta  is also available to purchase in store at Cable Car Museum and Wellington Museum.
