Pounamu

Mirna was intrigued with our pounamu.

The children gave us these two beautiful pieces as we flew out as farewell gifts. I love mine. It is light, contemporary and many shades of green.

Damen made Gilbert’s from whale bone. He turned it over to reveal the seven stars of Matariki. Fitting, as it is that time now. Matariki celebrates the time of the year that Maori traditionally travelled across the water, with the brighter night sky and stars to guide them.
