This is a very unique one off of a kind custom piece so it will be removed from our gallery permanently when sold.
A Manaia of this quality and size is a very rare find so it is a true collectors piece.
The Manaia is a spiritual guardian and often combined with other forms such as the hook.
The whale tail speaks of a strong family bond and also a great navigator.
