This is a wonderful carving - an organic, weighty and beautiful representation of a TANIWHA - carved in bone.  

TANIWHA are supernatural beings, that play a central role in Māori legend. Some are represented as giant lizards, others fiery dragons-like creatures with wings. Some are believed to be tribal guardians - protectors. Others were darker creatures, murderers and kidnappers! Our TANIWHA is a guardian!

Yuri has stained this piece using his own blend of dye and oil, and he's polished the pendant to a dull sheen. A perfect piece if you like original and beautifully crafted artwork.

This is a 3 dimensional piece so take a moment to watch the short video, it will give you a good perspective of the high standard of craftsmanship.
