Breath of Life



Joy, happiness, new growth, new beginnings, and spiritual awakening.... 

This carving is called 'Breath of Life'. It is part of the Increasing Life-force series of carvings. 

This simple design has an inlay of Paua which represents the innermost part of our being. Surrounding this and entering into it is the 'breath of life'. This life-force sustains and increases our lifespan and gives rise to great joy. 

The koru symbol is common in New Zealand and is inspired by the unfurling of the new fern fronds. Meanings associated with this are new growth, new beginnings, and spiritual awakening. 

The overall design can be likened to an upwards pointing arrow. This points to the goal of full enlightenment and eternal peace.  

 

 

 

 

    

 

 

The motif on the back of the carving is our connection with our ultimate divine nature. When what is above and below are united.

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

The carving also features a four-plait cord with sliding knots to allow for an adjustable fit around your neck. 

Hei konā rā (goodbye)
