UNEARTHED WARRIOR - Release the Warrior within you.

This piece is a wonderful flowing manaia hand carved from New Zealand jade. The stone is a deep, deep green, crisp and lustrous, it glows when lit from behind. The finish is a polished matte - it has a silky feel in the hand and looks absolutely wonderful.

This is a wonderfully crafted pendant - carved by Ross Crump. We are thrilled with it - unusual for his work, UNEARTHED WARRIOR has a matte finish which gives it a mysterious and soulful aura.  It is also a little fanciful and very decorative - a piece to wear every day!

Ross has incorporated a koru spiral in the tail which gives it an interesting symbology:

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 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 UNEARTHED WARRIOR to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited, adjustable Wapiti/Ice White combo coloured cord with Wapiti Brown Floret Popper. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, explaining the meaning behind the Manaia and Koru design.
