DAEDALUS - labyrinthine, complex and beautiful

DAEDALUS is carved from bone - a complex and intricately carved manaia pendant named after the mythical Greek inventor and architect who was the master of the complex, the labyrinthine.

This piece is a work of art - it depicts a traditional manaia head with a complex intertwined body which is a reflection of life's complexities, and its beauty. A super striking piece of traditional jewellery with contemporary flair. Signed by the artist.

Watch the video to appreciate the intricate design and the exceptional craftsmanship. 

Māori believe that carvings carry the spirit of those who wear them, becoming an important family Taonga (treasure) passed on to future generations of the family as an heirloom. 

The manaia is believed to be the holder of great spiritual energy and is a guardian against evil.

Delivered to you on a Black cord, which is adjustable in length.

We will also include our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Manaia and twist design.
