Sacred Hononga - Sacred Union

1,200.00

Dear friend, Kia Ora

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. Manaia can be adapted with other symbols and stylized to communicate different aspects, or meanings.

This creation is a double Manaia called Sacred Hononga or Sacred Union. This is a reoccurring theme in many of my latest carvings. I am not talking about physical union when speaking of Hononga (noun- union, connection, relationship.).

This refers to the esoteric union and spiritual relationships we need to attain and cultivate to fulfil the ultimate purpose of our human life. The Manaia each possess one wing representing the wisdom and compassion respectively. Together, these enable us to traverse the paths of life and attain the ultimate joy of union with the divine nature of all phenomena.  

Everything is interconnected. When we understand that nothing exists independently, we gain a deeper appreciation of nature and our connection to the rest of the universe.

The koru pattern on the inside of the carving represents the flow of inner energy. They also are symbolic of a journey of discovery and a peaceful mind. 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 awakening.

As such there are many secrets imbued within this Taonga. It is my encouragement to humanity, in general, to raise the vibe and grow true wisdom. Now is the time.

This Taonga is flowing with the heart energy to elevate your mind. Your potential to attain immovable inner peace is valid and waiting to arise. All this is reflected in this design.

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.
