We've called this little piece 'MAGPIE' after that cheeky bird - quick, territorial and just a little bit dangerous! A hand carved black jade pendant combining manaia and matau shapes and polished to a dull sheen - this is a lovely little piece.
The Manaia is regarded as a kind deity that protects people and helps them communicate with their ancestors - they are believed to be the messenger between God and man. They are worn to guide and protect.
This manaia is perfect if you are looking for a smaller pendant, fabulous for someone heading off on new adventures.
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.
We've plaited a cord in Black and Pale Honey - the colours you'll see when this little terror roars from the skies to defend her turf!
Delivered to you on an adjustable cord (postage included!). We will also include our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explain the meaning behind the Manaia and Hook design.
