This is a contemporary take on 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.
Check out the video because there is a lot of detail to see in this piece.
We have two of these - please use the drop-down menu to select the cord colour that you would like.
It 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. These shapes were worn by Māori who met James Cook when he first visited New Zealand in the late 18th century.
