FLUKE 1 - a superbly carved, 'one-off' piece of jade jewellery...

A New Zealand Jade whale tail, hand carved by Kerry Thompson. This is a very finely crafted piece, carved in a beautiful New Zealand Flower jade.

This piece can be worn reversed - each side is quite distinct and shows the wonderful, crisp carving and mellifluous design. An exceptional carving!

The whale is synonymous with friendship, loyalty, trust and kindness. They have quite some significance in Polynesian cultures. Here in New Zealand they are believed to be descendants of Tangaroa - the God of the Oceans. They are regarded as sacred and supernatural beings and are believed to provide guidance and protection. 

FLUKE 1 is a touching representation of these sentiments, a beautifully carved piece of art, from an exceptional jade artist.

We have a second piece, also carved by Kerry, which you can view at this link: FLUKE 2
