Aotea Squashed Mobius form pendantSKU
A hand crafted Disc form pendant carved in Aotea jade. Here are some words from the artist about the type of stone, its meaning and symbolism within the Māori world; Aotea is an exceptionally vibrant stone that can show colours of Blue, green,white and black.
A story I remember about Aotea is that it was the Gift Rūaumoko gave to Rangi (Sky), Papa (Earth) and Tangaroa (Ocean). The intention of this gift was to bring peace to this unsettled world. Aotea is only found in New Zealand and is prized by the people of Kāti Mahaki/ Makaawhio.
The paradox of a hard stone folding into soft curves, like a ribbon, twisted to my will, as if squashed between my fingers. If I could give you the world I would. Countless hours have been spent, invested in this token of deep consideration and discernment, simply to say how special you are.
It also includes a presentation case and a detailed description of the meaning of the carving.
