ONE PIECE ONLY
Activate STEALTH Mode...
This piece is a wonderful medium sized flowing manaia hand carved from New Zealand jade. The stone is a bright green, crisp and lustrous.
Lit from behind, it glows and the inner secrets of the stone are revealed. The finish is a polished matte - it has a silky feel in the hand and looks absolutely wonderful.
This is a beautifully carved pendant - a little beauty by Ross Crump. We are thrilled with it - unusual for his work, STEALTH has a matte finish which gives it a mysterious and soulful aura. It is also a little fanciful and very decorative - a piece to wear every day!
Ross has incorporated a fishtail into the bottom, which gives it an interesting symbology:
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 WHALE TAIL has quite some significance in Polynesian cultures. Here in new Zealand they are believed to be descendants of Tangaroa - the God of the Oceans. They are regarded as sacred and supernatural beings and are believed to provide guidance and protection.
We will ship STEALTH to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited, adjustable Flax/Olive combo coloured cord with Olive Popper. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, explaining the meaning behind the Manaia design.
