LEGACY SERIES - we have had a limited series of pieces carved with heritage and legacy at their heart. These are pieces that we believe will become a part of a family's history. Carved art to pass through generations building stories that will form a part of your family's history.
Kaitiaki - Guardian Māori Mask
A large and visually striking piece with a whole heap of detail and depth. HUMILITY is carved from a stunning piece of Marsden Flower jade. The colours in this particular piece of stone tell the story of its formation and the environment it existed in as the jade formed. It is a worthy piece of pounamu for this fantastic carving.
HUMILITY - who has held a strong sense of self throughout their evolution? Who carries with them their humble beginnings and remains true to themselves no matter the cost? This piece is for that special person in your life!
Although set up as a pendant, this really is a sculptural piece. This type of carving is often framed and displayed.
We have hand plaited a cord in Burnt Gold, Manuka Green and Khaki with a sunny and striking burnt gold traditional lashing along the top.
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.
The etching in the front face is a Moko. The lines of a moko traditionally followed the lines of the face and are called manawa - the māori word for heart. These represent the life journey of the person wearing the moko, and is very personal. Some historians believe that these tatoos may also have been a symbol of the wearers' social status, their role in the community and their genealogical identity.
HUMILITY 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.
