SOULGAZER - look into my soul and you will find depths that are hidden to the casual glance, within these eyes you will find courage and strength.
A stunning, hand carved whalebone tiki.
SOULGAZER is a very large piece and perfect if you are looking for a significant piece, crafted from whalebone.
This piece is carved from the jaw of a whale - it is beautifully structured with a lot of character in the grain. Whale bone is a porous material and will absorb body oils - over time it will turn a wonderful golden colour if you choose to wear it.
This is a large Tiki and significant piece. It has been handcarved from Whalebone with beautiful blue pāua shell eyes which capture the light and reveal themselves when you hold the tiki up to the light.
SOULGAZER is wearable, but equally would make a stunning display piece.

A LITTLE ABOUT THE TIKI:
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.
