This stunning & unique Large Manaia Sculpture has been designed & carved by the hands of New Zealand Artist - Alex Sands. Pounamu is a true taonga (treasure) - the greenstone/jade has been sourced from New Zealand's West Coast of the South Island. This sculpture has been accentuated with Paua Shell detail & sits upon an NZ sourced timber.
Manaia Meaning: A personal shield of great power, manaia is the embodiment of mana - the archetypal Māori measurement of worth, respect & prestige. WIth ethereal presence & energy, manaia protects the wearer/owner. Manaia: the elemental guardian of earth, sea & sky.
