MAHE - Sinker
Here's a lovely, creative piece of carving - a modern take on a traditional MAHE - stone fishing sinker. Carved from gorgeous New Zealand Inanga jade.
A lovely design - a double Pekapeka nestled on top of a beautifully rounded and substantial body.
The stone is phenomenal! One side a light minty green colour, the reverse is a gorgeous emerald green. You choose which side best expresses your mood!
PEKAPEKA are named after a native New Zealand bat, a tiny creature that flies at night and holds quite some spiritual significance. Māori legend believes these bats are a physical manifestation of the mythical, night-flying bird - the Hokioi.
Look at the photos and definitely check out the very brief video which shows it slowly revolving. This reveals the beauty of this piece - it's shape, depth and the wonderful colours of the material.
We provide this with a plaited tan cord, which is adjustable - a very cool pendant carved by Alex Sands.
A wonderful gift for someone important to you (or as a special gift for yourself).
Shipped on a hand plaited, adjustable cord and we also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the manaia design.
