A stunning Manaia carved from genuine NZ Douglas Creek Stone. The colours of this piece are exquisite.

The Manaia is a mythological creature in Māori culture, and is a common motif in Māori carving and jewellery. The Manaia is usually depicted as having the head of a bird and the tail of a fish and the body of a man, though it is sometimes depicted as a bird, a serpent, or a human figure in profile. The Manaia is traditionally believed to be the messenger between the earthly world of mortals and the domain of the spirits, and its symbol is used as a guardian against evil.

Douglas Creek Stone (a form of Serpentinite) – Found only on the West Coast of the South Island in the vicinity of its name’s sake, each piece of Serpentinite has inclusions of many minerals that make a stunning piece of Artwork. Two or more Serpentine minerals can form a Serpentinite Rock and many other sub varieties of this stunner. This is regarded as one of the three stones that make up the Pounamu family.
