  • Beautiful Hapopo Pounamu Niho or Tooth. This has a lovely curve to the shape. Carved locally.

    Taniwha when honoured and respected can be powerful protective guardians not only of people but places as well. With the ability to shape-shift, in the water they could be sharks, giant squids while on land could be dragon like creatures. These kaitiaki (guardians) live in depths of the rivers and sea often where dangerous currents are. They form a connection between the physical world and the spiritual world, ancestors.

    Pounamu or Greenstone is regarded as a stone sacred to the gods by the Maori of New Zealand. As a Taonga -meaning treasured, and it should be worn with respect and pride. Pounamu is a gift from the heart.
