To the native people of New Zealand, the Maori the twist or Pikorua on our Genuine New Zealand Greenstone pendant resembles the intertwined Pikopiko ferns. Pikopiko is a pale green new-growth fern frond that thrives in shady, damp areas of the New Zealand woods and Rua is the Maori word for the number two.
The entanglement has no beginning or end which refers to an eternal bond between people. The pikorua symbol shows how individuals sometimes go their own way on their path of life but always come back together because of their strong bond hence the description of pikorua as “The path of love and life”.
The Pikorua symbolizes the strength and beauty of enduring friendship and interwoven lives. It is inspired by the symbols of life and growth.
This unique and beautiful piece of genuine New Zealand Greenstone or Pounamu as the Maori have named it, has been hand carved and then polished to a high shine finish and would most definitely be a prized treasure for anyone who may receive it.
