Hand carved by Ric Moor, INTENTION is made from beautiful, varied New Zealand flower jade. What's cool about this piece is the variation in colour from one side two the other. INTENTION looks fantastic worn either side to the front - a very cool and unique pendant whichever side you choose to wear it!
The body of the manaia culminates in a fish tail - a gentle organic detail which contrasts with the detail of the carved head. This establishes a connection between the ocean and the land - perfect for a piece that comes from an island nation.
Take a moment to watch the short video we have made which shows the pendant slowly rotating. This will give you a very clear picture of the shape nuances and the colour of the stone - it's well worth the few moments it will take you to watch it.
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.
This pendant will be delivered to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited adjustable cord. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Manaia and Hook design.
