Bone Manaia and Taniwha Carvings

The Manaia is an ancient mythical being with a birds head and a human form. It is said to be the messenger between the earthly world of mortals and the domain of the spirits. The Manaia is a holder of great spiritual energy and is a guardian against evil. It can be seen blended into many Maori designs with subtle differences between tribes. This section also includes many other beings from Maori mythology.

Taniwha are often refered to as sea monsters but in reality are protectors of the rivers and lakes but they will however exact punishment on those who do not respect the waters. The Marakihau is a deep sea Taniwha that will use its hollow tongue to suck up boats or even people in coastal villages who it feels have done wrong to the ocean.

Many of these bone carvings also incorporate an inlay of beautiful rainbow coloured Paua shell.

Maori Carved  Bone Manaia PendantAll carvings are supplied complete with a traditional style cord & bag.
Most cords are hand made from black waxed braid with a loop and bone toggle fitted. A woven flax presentation case and information on the meaning of the design is also included.

Maori Carved  Deer Antler  Manaia Pendant

Featured Artists & Unique or Limited Edition Custom Carvings:

These are very special carvings are often spectacular unique or limited edition pieces in bone, pearl, wood or jade from guest artists and are not part of our normal range.

These often reclusive artists take their inspiration not only from Maori mythology but also from the many other cultures that now share our beautiful land. They also illustrate the deep respect these artists have for the natural and spiritual worlds.

As soon as each carving is sold it will be removed from our site permanently so check for updates often and be quick when you find one that you like, it may be your only chance!!

Maori Carved  Bone Manaia Pendant

Each piece is crafted by hand so even if following the same design, no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. Unique pieces in bone and pearl can also be designed especially for you, telling your story through traditional styling and some may also include exotic inlays of shell or precious stones.
