This is a traditional form of an ancient shape, the Rei Puta.
These pendants were carved as a way to pass intergenerational information down through the generations. The specific design contained familial information and was a way to preserve and relate this to following generations.
TĀHUHU KŌRERO - the great tradition of retaining important history through discussion, through storytelling. This was also achieved by carving in stone family history - its people and legends. This piece is a reflection of mauri: life, mana: pride, kaitiaki: guardianship and whakapapa: genealogy.
TĀHUHU KŌRERO is a decorative piece which is in keeping with the early use of this shape as an ornamental pendant - commonly worn by men and women.
Beautifully carved in a Waimea Jade from New Zealand West Coast.
Although set up as a pendant, TĀHUHU KŌRERO really is a sculptural piece, a carving for the collector. This type of carving is often framed. So that's the opportunity - frame and preserve.
