These are marvellous, unique manaia pendants carved for us by Ross Crump. They have been hand carved from New Zealand Kahurangi jade - a beautiful crisp green, and rare Jade.
Take a close look at the photos and the brief video. There is a lot of detail in this carving - lots happening, but carved with precision and a great feel for the material.
These manaia have the head of a bird and the tail of a fish. The central body is decorated with a beautifully carved koru - all important symbols in the South Pacific.
This piece exhibits all the hallmarks of Ross Crumps' work - fine detailed carving, a wonderful balance and exceptional Kahurangi jade.
A great gift for someone important to you (or as a special gift for yourself).
If you've ever travelled down to the West Coast of New Zealand, that is home to this marvellous stone, you'll appreciate the beauty of this region - and this is a little piece of that magic!
