ONE PIECE ONLY
Flower Jade, Rare and Beautiful....
Hand carved, rare flower jade manaia. A Ross Crump beauty!
This manaia has been carved from a gorgeous piece of flower jade, a semi-translucent piece of jade through the head and body through a stunning milky-gold at the bottom of the tail - love this piece!
Ross has produced a finely carved piece with lots happening - a detailed head, koru swirls and a lovely swing through the body and into the tail.
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 Koru: the Māori word for 'loop'. The spiral shaped koru design represents an unfolding silver fern frond. The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to ‘going back to the beginning’. The unfurling frond itself is symbolic of new life, new beginnings, hope and rebirth.
