LEGEND - a look back at where you come from...
A beautifully carved rei puta pendant.
This is a modern rendition of an ancient shape, the Rei Puta. It is believed that these pendants were carved as a way to pass information down through the generations. The specific design contained familial information and was a way to preserve and relate this to following generations.
LEGEND is a decorative piece which is in keeping with the early use of this shape as an ornamental pendant - commonly worn by men and women. Rei Puta were worn by Māori who met James Cook when he first visited New Zealand in the late 18th century.
