INSEPARABLE- a 'pièce de résistance' carved for us by Yuri Terenyi. A large and intricate double manaia carved from natural bone and stained with a tea dye Yuri makes himself and has used to finish this work of art.
INSEPARABLE is a superb example of the carvers art. It is an incredibly intricate piece that has been beautifully carved and polished and then completed with a subtle dye to accentuate the intricate work.
This piece incorporates two strong and traditional designs - the twist and the manaia. A super interesting carving with shapes and patterns which are believed to provide a connection between the spirit and mortal worlds.
Wear this, or display it, it is a lovely piece of art carved with exceptional skill, a ton of creative genius and just the right combination of detail and simplicity.
Māori believe that carvings carry the spirit of those who wear them, becoming an important family Taonga (treasure) passed on to future generations of the family as an heirloom.
The manaia is believed to be the holder of great spiritual energy and is a guardian against evil.
