This stylized manaia was crafted by Tamaora Walker to represent guardianship - bringing balance and protection to the wearer. The notched exterior edge beautifully highlights the translucent aspects of the pounamu and reflects the line of descent from one's ancestors (whakapapa). The etched surface design represents the flow of life and draws attention to the inlaid paua shell eye.
