Flower Jade, Rare and Beautiful....
KAIARAHI WAIRUA - SPIRIT GUIDE
Let this stunning pendant become your KAIARAHI WAIRUA.
This is a wonderful use of rare New Zealand flower jade. You can clearly see how impressive the stone is when carved with skill and sensitivity. This is a gorgeous piece carved with Ross Crump's inimitable craftsmanship.
We love the beautiful coalescence of the orange koru heart with a pale apple green head that glows when held to the light.
Hand carved, rare Flower Jade Manaia. A Ross Crump beauty!
KAIARAHI WAIRUA is a classic Ross Crump manaia.
Watch the brief video that shows this piece revolving - you will appreciate the carving mastery and best see the lovely colours through the stone. A standout piece of jade art to display.
THE SYMBOLISM IN THIS CARVING.....
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.
Koru: the Māori word for 'loop'. The spiral shaped koru design represents an unfolding silver fern frond. The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to ‘going back to the beginning’. The unfurling frond itself is symbolic of new life, new beginnings, hope and rebirth.
We will ship this work of art to you on a hand plaited adjustable cord. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind both the Manaia and koru designs.
