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. 

Also in this gallery are other similar guardians such as Taniwha (guardians of t rivers and lakes), and Marakihau (guardians of the ocean) 

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

Additional cord and packing details can be found HERE
