Pendant- Whale

Beautifully handcarved Pounamu (New Zealand Jade) pendant by Queenstown artist Luke Leaf. Measures 4cm x 3cm, strung on a black waxed cord.

The whale is a symbol of great size and intelligence, and carvings of whales appear on some Maori meeting houses or food storehouses. Whales and dolphins were believed to help some Maori navigate their way across the South Pacific during the Great Migration.
