This is one of a kind piece by virtue of the amazing jade from which it is carved so it will be removed from our gallery permanently when sold.
Pito are sharpened Pounamu river stones used as a traditional tool cut the baby's umbilical cord when born.
After use they were often kept as a momento or later re carved into a pendant to be worn as a sacred piece by the growing child.
