A beautiful pendant, in a māori Wahaika club design, carved for us by Rueben Tipene. This is an beautiful pendan carved from a nuanced piece of New Zealand pounamu. The stone is a fascinating chatoyant green - beautiful colours for a piece with a lot of history behind the design.

A wonderfully weighty piece that feels great to wear and hold.

Take a look at the video to see the shape of the pendant and the wonderful colour of the stone.

A wahaika is a type of hand club that was in common use before the introduction of European technology to New Zealand. Most wahaika were made either from whale bone or wood. The whole blade edge might be used to parry blows or strike an opponent during combat.
