NZ GREENSTONE SCULPTURE HAERENGA (A276) RUAKARAKA POUNAMU

$4,000.00

Nice light coloured Ruakaraka from the Arahura River was used in this one of a kind sculpture carved and signed by Peter Tauwhare. 

Haerenga translates to Journey.

Peter Tauwhare’s whakapapa traces back to the Arahura river where he sources much of his stone to work with in his small studio not far away.

Using only the most rudimentary tools he applies his craft with a heartfelt karakia to his Ancestors to guide his hand before he starts to breathe life into his creations.  Incredibly talented Carver with a unique style of seeing what lies beneath the surface of the stone brings this out in an almost Neolithic style that would be hard to match.

I always feel I am looking at something ancient and other worldly when I am holding a piece of his art.

Free standing will make a wonderful show piece for the office or home.

BEHIND POUNAMU

Pounamu is so much more than a stone. It holds Wairua (spiritual essence) through its association with the land and its beauty. Each piece lends strength and well-being to the wearer, making it a true gift from the heart. Over time, Pounamu absorbs its owners' natural oils and takes on a beautiful lustre. It is then that the stone's essence becomes one with your own and the stone has truly chosen you.

We love the Pounamu we purchased from these guys and really appreciate how they replaced the cord for us a year later.
