MOANA'S GUIDANCE - everyone can use a direction finder, especially seafarers and other travellers.
MOANA'S GUIDANCE provides connection to the ocean. Who wouldn't appreciate a little guidance and shared wisdom from the mighty whale!
A New Zealand Inanga Jade Manaia with whale tail, hand carved by Ross Crump. This is an awesome smaller pendant! The jade is a glorious pale green, soft and semi translucent.
If you appreciate the symbolism of the manaia, but prefer something subtle and interesting - take a look at this piece. It is a fantastic little pendant, beautifully carved and rich in meaning.
We have bound this piece with a plaited Kalahari cord and a Paradise Blue floret. Worn on a short cord so that it is visible nestled in the hollow of your throat - perfect!
The symbolism of MOANA'S GUIDANCE ....
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 WHALE has quite some significance in Polynesian cultures. Here in new Zealand they are believed to be descendants of Tangaroa - the God of the Oceans. They are regarded as sacred and supernatural beings and are believed to provide guidance and protection.
We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, explaining the meaning behind the Manaia design.
