$23.00 NZD 

For Maori the Manaia is the carrier of supernatural powers - it is 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 sea.  The cord is adjustable. The pendant is decorated with paua shell.
