$175.00 NZD 
Available for pre-order

A stunning Greenstone Jade pendant incorporating Te manaia and Hei Matau designs. To Maori the Manaia is the carrier of supernatural powers-the spiritual guardian which protects the wearer from evil. It is traditionally depicted with the head of a bird, the body of a man and the tail of a fish- creating a balance between sky, earth and the sea. The Hei-matau or Fish Hook shape represents strength and determination and brings peace, prosperity and good health. It also provides a safe journey over water.

This pendant has a Maori design carved onto one side and a Paua Shell eye on one side.

Available in matt or polished finish. H36
