Stunning Koropepe sculpture carved from Hapopo Pounamu set on a Pounamu base. Carved by Dean Taylor.
Symbolises new beginnings, abundance and prosperity. The Koropepe is thought to represent the curled eel which is useful to find the right path in life.
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 displayed with respect and pride. Pounamu is a gift from the heart.
