A beautiful New Zealand Flower Jade Tiki pendant hand carved by the one and only Ross Crump.
This is a large and significant piece. It has been handcarved from New Zealand marsden flower jade which is only found in a small area in the South Island - it is quite rare.

The tiki is a well recognised symbol in Maori culture, but also has historical roots in Hawaiian and wider Polynesian cultures. It is believed to symbolise fertility, and was often worn by women as a fertilising symbol. Its form is believed to represent a human embryo, often carved with the hands placed on the loins in what is believed to be a direct reference to fertility.
These pendants were traditionally highly valued and wearers were seen to possess clarity of thought, loyalty, great inner knowledge and strength of character.
We will deliver this beautiful Tiki on a hand plaited black adjustable cord and will ship to you with DHL Express Courier.
