A manaia is a spiritual guardian and protects against evil. The manaia also represents balance. Quite often the manaia designs have the head of a bird, body of man and the tail of a fish. They represent the sky, earth and sea.
Also, some have three fingers, representing birth, life and death. A fourth finger represents the afterlife. Manaia is one of our favourite Maori designs and can have many different designs.
This manaia is a freeform one. Photos of the manaia pendants from the front and back
In short, a stunning and unique greenstone pendants with a special meaning.
