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 they 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.
Our stylised Whale Tail Koru Genuine New Zealand Greenstone 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.
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.
