Hand carved by Ross Crump - AMAZONAS is made from beautiful New Zealand Flower Jade. Check out the jade - fractured, colourful and very lively - a glimpse of feather in the jungle!

The body of the manaia is decorated with a hook - softening the detail of the carved head. The tail culminates in a fish tail establishing a connection with the ocean.

This piece looks fantastic from both sides - take a moment to watch the short video to appreciate the form and colour of this manaia.

We have bound this with a Manuka Green coloured cord and a Kalahari Brown popper - this picks up the little golden brown inclusions in the body of this piece.

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.

This pendant will be delivered to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited adjustable cord. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind both the Manaia and Hook design.
