BEHIND MANAIA

The Manaia is a strong, protective talisman, with the head of a bird, the body of a man and the tail of a fish. Traditionally, Manaia is believed to act as a messenger between mortals, and those in the spiritual world. It is an impressive spiritual guardian to keep one safe.

I am incredibly impressed and delighted with your service. I recently came in to purchase a Pounamu as a leaving gift for a very special Person on behalf of a group of us and the process from start to finish has been nothing short of exceptional. I am really blown away.
