Description

British Columbia Nephrite Jade Hand Carved Whale Tail Extendable Necklace 

The carvings based on Maori designs have special significance. The pre-European Maori had no written language so tribal history and the stories of the gods were kept using many forms of fine arts and crafts ranging from basket and cloth weaving to complex wood, bone, shell and jade carving. 

It is believed that a carving which is worn with respect or given and received with love, takes on part of the spirit of those who wear or handle it. 

The ocean has always been the dominant force for the Maori people who traveled huge distances in their long canoes and lived on the bounty of the tropical waters. They had a great respect for the creatures on the sea and in particular dolphins and whales.

 

This pendant measures 33MM from stem to tip of tail and 32MM from tail, side to side.  The stem is drilled side to side at the top. This pendant is complimentary strung on black waxed linen that extends from 16 to 26".
