This manaia incorporates the head of a bird, a koru and the tail of a fish - linking the sky, land and sea. These are important symbols down here in the South Pacific - no matter where you are, you're not too far away from any of these elements!

If you like the photos, take a moment to watch the short video. You will gain an appreciation of the gorgeous jade and the wonderful shape of this piece. This is something that will become a real family treasure.

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.
