A beautiful pekapeka! A marvellously spiritual piece that is believed to represent a native New Zealand bat, a tiny creature that flies at night and holds quite some spiritual significance. Some believe that this design may also represent two intertwined bird forms. One thing is certain, this is a beautiful example of this traditional carving.
DIVERGENT was hand carved in bone for us by Yuri Terenyi. The eyes are a bright New Zealand paua - renowned for the depth of its striking colours.
The manaia shape represents the connection between the past and the present. Some believe that it provides a communion with ancestors - a means to connect with important people in our past.
This pendant has a Kalahari coloured cord necklace, which is adjustable - a very cool piece of art to wear, carved by Yuri Terenyi.
DIVERGENT - wear it for protection, and carry your ancestral spirits with you on your journey through life.
Delivered to you with DHL Express Courier.
Also included our Kia Ora cards, which give a little description behind the meaning of the Manaia design.
