New Zealand Flower Jade - Rare and Beautiful....
Hand carved, rare flower jade manaia. Hand carved by Ross Crump - this is a beautiful pendant.
This large manaia has been carved from a gorgeous piece of flower jade. The colours in the jade vary beautifully from a translucent, apple green in the head through a stunning coppery-gold with flecks of red through the body and tail.
The body of the manaia is decorated with two koru - softening the detail of the carved head. This piece looks fantastic from both sides - take a moment to watch the short video to appreciate the form and colour of this piece.
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 Koru: The unfurling frond shape is symbolic of new life, new beginnings and the hope that is associated with a step into something new and unknown. It is a reflection of the spirit of rejuvenation and the personal growth that comes with undertaking new challenges.
