The ocean has always been the dominant force for the native people of New Zealand – the Maori who travelled huge distances in their long canoes and lived on the bounty of the tropical waters.They had a great respect for all the creatures of the sea but in particular whales. With their great size and obvious intelligence whales played an important part in the culture of the Maori people and were often represented as an example of family love with mother and calf always side by side and touching at every opportunity.
The whale is also seen as a great guardian and protector of the ocean. Our stylised Whale Tail Koru Jade Pendant also shows an unfurling koru – signifying new beginnings, growth and re-generation.
Wearing our whale tail koru pendant will signify a deep respect for the ocean and the creatures who dwell within.
