Kiri-Pu-Tapu Kahurangi Hei Taonga
This is just a stunning little slice of the beautiful Kahurangi pounamu. You really need to see it in person to see its true beauty. When the light shines though it, it lights up like some kinda green magic. Stunning.
Kiri is skin, form, substance. Pū-tapu is origin or source. Kiri-pū-tapu – the original form of being.
Kiri-pū-tapu describes the fact that these pieces have been minimally worked so that they maintain their original form and skin.
Pounamu is such an incredible kohatu. It is beautiful at every stage, whether it is carved or not. We wanted to honour that in these taonga by keeping them as natural as possible.
It is wonderful to wear these taonga against the skin, very grounding and reassuring. They make me feel stable, calm and content. Perfect for those days when you want your pounamu with you but you don’t want to be too loud about it as you go about your business.
This is one of a collection of lovely simple taonga we have put together for you as affordable gifts for the holiday season. A small pounamu necklace, slim enough for pēpē, tamariki and adults.
