Tuaiwi (Backbone) Sterling Silver Ring - 10 Segment | David Beamish
"Each ring within this series captures a moment for me that remains a tohu (mark/symbol) - a marker dropped to show a pathway. The observer of that tohu interprets it in their own manner, adding to the resonance & meaning - enhancing the mana (essence/authority) & mauri (life principle) of that taonga (treasure) & place".
Referencing archaic reel adornments found in some of the oldest archaeology in Aotearoa (New Zealand) - often crafted from Moa or Whalebone. A nod to the vertebrae also found in the archaeological context, which provides insight into the diet & health of our ancient peoples.
Internal Diameter - 21mm x Height - 7mm
