This is a great matau pendant - carved for us by Yuri Terenyi, this is a fantastic piece. We've named it FULLBACK - a protector, a piece that has your back!
Yuri has carved this from natural bone and has used his homemade dye to give it his unique colour. This is a pendant that you can put on and leave on. It is robust and resilient - just like a good FULLBACK!
If you like the photos, take a moment to watch the short video. You will gain an appreciation of the pendant shape and the grain and colour of the bone.
The Manaia: A mythical being believed to be the invisible light, or aura, surrounding a person. They represent spiritual power and are believed to be the guide that leads the spirits to heaven. They are worn to guide and protect.
The Hook: The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life - what a lovely sentiment to gift to someone important to you.
