PURE SPIRIT embodies the jade artists' skill - transforming a raw piece of stone into art made to wear. Ross Crump carved this piece for us and it is a fine example of the Masters' skill.
PURE SPIRIT - A medium sized, hand carved manaia pendant - with a wonderful koru heart.
A wonderful flowing manaia hand carved from New Zealand Jade. The jade is a beautiful deep green colour with a lot of character. Take a look at the back side of this Manaia - the jade is varied and really interesting. You can see that it has incurred some pale mineral inclusion when the jade formed - a tough road travelled in its creation, but with a PURE SPIRIT.
There are two major design elements in this piece:
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.
We will ship this stunner to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited, adjustable khaki coloured cord with manuka green floret. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, explaining the meaning behind the Manaia and Koru design.
