THE MAST - we've named this piece THE MAST a central pillar of guidance. THE MAST's main feature is the matau or hook, a wonderful talisman and representation of protection for those travelling. On the side of the Matau is a Manaia face, a connection to your ancestors.
Hand carved for us by Yuri Terenyi, this is a very cool, large piece. We've added a black or khaki/kalahari cord - strong colours for a strong pendant.
Use the dropdown menu to select the cord colour you would like with your pendant.
If you like the photos, take a moment to watch the short video. You will gain an appreciation of the pendant shape and the grain and colour of the bone.
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.
Also included; our Kia Ora cards, which give a little meaning behind the Manaia and Hook designs.
