JOURNEY - a piece to remind you to enjoy the JOURNEY just as much as the destination.

A stunning Ric Moor Manaia/Matau pendant. Beautifully carved from our highly prized Flower Jade. Take a look at the beautiful mix of colours in the stone, and the way one of our favourite jade artists has used this to the very best effect!

Ric has finished JOURNEY in a fine, soft matte - this promotes the variable colours in the stone. A very striking, larger sized pendant.

The symbolism of this JOURNEY....

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.

In New Zealand Maori tradition the fish hook represents prosperity, abundance, strength and determination and is also worn to show a respect for the ocean. Wear this amulet for safety when travelling, particularly over water.

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.

We will ship JOURNEY to you with DHL Express Courier on a four plait, adjustable dark brown coloured cord. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, explaining the meaning behind the Manaia and Hook design.
