A hand crafted Eagle Ray bone carving pendant with Paua shell inlay by Kerry and Amanda Thompson

Complete with a waxed braid cord and carved bone toggle, it also includes a traditional woven presentation case and a detailed description of the meaning of the carving.

Size:
50mm Long (2 Inches)

This is a one of a kind custom piece so will be removed from our gallery permanently when sold

The Ray is respected as a powerful protector of the deep. Its unusual shape and the way it seems to glide out of the blackness give it a very spiritual power, which it is in some areas believed to allow it to move between the mortal and spiritual realms at will.
The Maori name is Whai and it is said that it protects the pipi or clam beds so if proper respect is shown for the bounty of the ocean Whai will ensure a plentiful harvest.
