TOROA - Sea Bird

This is one of 7 Framed Artworks we have from renowned New Zealand artist and carver, Kerry Thompson.

A beautiful New Zealand Jade Matau carving, framed and signed by Kerry Thompson.

Kerry has used the Southern Royal Albatross - the TOROA - as his inspiration for this beautiful artwork. It beautifully captures the grace and power of this amazing sea bird.

The stone is a beautiful, dark New Zealand Marsden jade - Kerry has used a polishing technique where he mixes a bright shine with a satin matte. This really captures the carved design highlighting different aspects of the work depending on the angle of view and the way the light strikes the jade.

A little about this design...

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.

TOROA is sent to you in a wooden shipping box - these are purely for shipping purposes, designed to protect the frame.

Also included, our 'Kia ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
