The Manaia is regarded as a kind deity that protects people and helps them communicate with their ancestors - they are believed to be the messenger between God and man. They are worn to guide and protect. 

We've named this piece GOTTHARD - brave, courageous and ready to face dangers and tough conditions.

This manaia is designed with children in mind, but it is also perfect if you are looking for a smaller pendant.

The bone will take on a honey-coloured hue over time as it absorbs oils from the body - they look better as they age.

A fabulous little pendant for a young person heading off on new adventures.

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.
