Kiwi bone carving pendant.
The kiwi is our native New Zealand flightless bird.
The Maori call the kiwi “Te Manuhuna a Tanemahuta”, the Hidden Bird of Tane, Guardian of the forest.
There are 3 species of kiwis, the brown kiwi, the little spotted kiwi and the great spotted kiwi. The brown kiwi is further divided in 3 sub-species.
The kiwi is flightless, it’s got hair-like feathers, and it burrows in the ground… and it’s endangered. The Department of Conservation, Kiwi Houses, Zoos and others work hard to save our kiwi birds…
