By virtue of the amazing stone from which this piece is carved, it is a one of a kind piece so will be removed from our gallery permanently when sold.     

The Kaka Poria or "kaka ring" was fitted to the leg of a pet Kaka bird kept as a pet by ancient Maror.
The kaka is a large and very smart native alpine parrot with a reputation for being cheeky and very intelligent. Even today it still causes mayhem for tourists in the alpine areas of New Zealand as it steals shiny objects like teaspoons or dismantles car windscreen wipers and trim.  They are very friendly, very noisy and love having an audience to watch their antics.
