Hei Tiki Matua Whale Bone with Paua Eyes - White

Whalebone is of deep spiritual essence in the Maori culture. Whales are considered a taonga species, and represent abundance, richness and were regarded as chiefly animals. Early Maori welcomed stranded whales as a gift from Tangaroa (God of the sea).

Paua is believed to strengthen the body and the heart of the wearer. With a stronger heart and body, the person is thought to be able to communicate their feelings more clearly. The Maori believe the Paua will bring connectivity and harmony to relationships. The way the colours of the shell shift in the light is also a symbol of change and transition in our Maori culture.
