Dear friend, Kia Ora

This Taonga is named Pēpi, which means to baby (because this is a nice petite one). It is a Tomairaki (Tōmairangi) is the reminiscent of a dew drop.

“Ka patapata iho taku whakaakoranga āno he ua, ka maturuturu iho taku kupu ano he tomairangi (tomairaki), me te ua punehunehu ki runga i te tipu hou.  - My teaching drops like rain, my words trickle forth like dew and the misty rain on new shoots”

As such, this is an expression of great wisdom. Wisdom that guides us to deep inner peace and stability.

It is made from authentic New Zealand sourced Pounamu. While I am a registered Artisan licensed to purchase raw Pounamu through Ngāi Tahu’s authenticity assurance scheme, this specific stone has been sourced elsewhere. This Pounamu was blessed and gifted to me by the very esteemed Kaumātua and Tohonga of Na te Upoko Runaka o Te Runaka ki Otautahi o Kai Tahu, Rev’d Maurice Manawaroa Gray MNZM, LTh,JP.  The source of pounamu doesn’t get much better than that! This stone was obtained from the rivers of the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. 

The stone itself is a very hard and high quality translucent Kahurangi Pounamu.

Each carving is handcrafted and is unique. The difference in each piece of stone makes these incredibly individualised.

Pounamu is a touch stone with a tactile surface that is comforting to rub. Over time, when used in this way, the oils transferred onto this stone will gradually deepen the sheen, complexion, and lustre of this piece.
