A Manaia carving depicts the head of a bird, the body of a human & a tail of a fish.


The name Manaia contains the word ‘mana’ which means power & prestige. A soul with mana has a greater spiritual connection.


A Manaia is a mythological creature in Māori culture & is a guardian, holding the container for the wearer to be present in the spiritual world & this world. Protecting them from undesired energies & inviting greater luck & goodwill into their life.


The head of a bird represents a messenger to the spirits in the afterlife, the body of a human represents our human experience on this earth & a tail of a fish is a symbolism of abundance & prosperity. A reminder to the wearer that all is connected & that all balances out perfectly.


Over time this pounamu will absorb its wearer’s natural body oils, taking on qualities unique only to them. It will harness their energy & its colours & depth of detail will alter beautifully over time.


Te Ua Hamuera is the artist who carved this magnificent taonga (treasure). All our pounamu is carved with love & beautiful intentions.

This is piece is approximately 100 x 30 x 5 mm & 24 grams
