Manaia & Taniwha

Each bone carving tells a story. This gallery displays examples of some of the bone carvings I have created.   

The following Taonga are a series of Manaia. The Manaia, or spiritual guardian, is the profile of a Tiki. This is symbolic of being half in this world and half in the spirit world. As such, a Manaia can cross from the spiritual world to the human world. Some carvings or Taonga if created correctly, may act as a vehicle, or cradle for such manifestations.  

Manaia can be adapted with other symbols and stylised to communicate different aspects or meanings. The following spiritual guardians are imbued with many layers of meaning. They each convey messages of hope, spiritual wisdom and various esoteric secrets that are not readily or easily shared, or perhaps even understood. By sitting quietly with the Taonga, deeper levels of understanding will be revealed over time.
