We had to do it! The moment we saw this piece, the name 'YOU'RE THE MAN' sprang to mind! This carving exudes confidence - it is a tight, beautifully carved manaia koru that just looks like it's ready to take on the world.

A wonderful flowing manaia hand carved from New Zealand Flower Jade. The jade is a mix of greens - the colours really showing the variation in colours you sometimes find working from the heart of the stone towards the outer skin.  Deep greens, minty green and pale brownish oranges. Ross has created a fantastic work of art.

There are two major design elements in 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 Māori word for 'loop'. The spiral shaped koru design represents an unfolding silver fern frond. The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to ‘going back to the beginning’.  The unfurling frond itself is symbolic of new life, new beginnings, hope and rebirth.

We will ship this stunner to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited, adjustable khaki/ice white coloured cord with khaki Popper. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, explaining the meaning behind the Manaia and Koru design.
