FUNDAMENTAL FLOW - this is a cracker piece! The jade is a really subtle mix of the colours that make our New Zealand jade so appealing - soft dark greens with speckles of paler minty hues. Overall this is a dark piece - I love it! The binding is a sharp khaki and is perfect for the matau's colour. It is a deep, broody piece that will look fantastic worn and which will get better and better over time
A bold, medium sized matau, made by hand from gorgeous New Zealand Jade.
FUNDAMENTAL FLOW exhibits a high level of craftsmanship and is a great example of Kyohei Noguchi's carving skill - he is going to be someone to watch in our view. We think he will produce some magnificent, creative jade carvings - this is one!
A very fine tribute to the matau - which traditionally symbolises a leader, someone who will protect and provide. Perfect to express love, recognise an important anniversary or long-standing friendship, or perhaps to seal an engagement. A fabulous way to recognise someone special!
We will ship this to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited adjustable cord.
