Wisdom & inner peace

This Taonga is named Ka runga ake me raro iho. Within this is the expression: as above so below. 

It describes various interconnections between all beings and their environment.

Another way of expressing this is that everything is a reflection of our own mind and attitude. What we put out comes back.

This is expressed within the symmetry of the design. The reflections of above and below.

However at the heart of this carving is the essence of our pure mind. On one level there are streams of healing entering into this. At another level, there are streams of healing emanating from it too...

Our potential for great harmony is entirely possible. It is in reach within our own heart and deep within our minds untapped potential.

There are also other levels of meaning contained within this Taonga.

It also comes with an officially signed certificate of authenticity and has been registered in my database of work.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the carving and over time come to fully understand all the various layers of meaning imbued in this creation. I wish you and your family the deepest peace and happiness.
