NGARU - Waves

“Just as the waves of the sea are constant, may you remain constant regardless of what changes may happen in life” - Rueben Tipene

This Mango, or Shark, is carved from New Zealand Pounamu. A beautiful piece of stone, and perfect for this design!

Rueben has selected a kokopu stone which has a distinct speckled appearance - it adds mystique to the design, and in many ways creates the aura of a cruising predator! The soft matte finish adds to this. Rueben has engraved a wave design into the lower half of the shark and extended this through the tail - a very subtle addition in a waved, koru form that adds character to the look, and to the feel of this gorgeous carving.

This really is a beautifully carved piece of art to wear - exceptional design and workmanship! 

NGARU - jade art carved for us by Rueben Tipene. The best way to appreciate this work is to watch the brief video we have taken of it slowly revolving. Look for the variation in colour from the head down through the body, and the speckled patina that is characteristic of this beautiful stone.

NGARU is a unique work of art from a very fine artist!

We provide this with a black adjustable cord.
