Maori Whale Tail Bone Pendants on Leather Cord Necklaces
Bone carved Maori Whale Tail (Mauri Paraoa) pendants on high quality leather cord necklaces. These pendants are hand-carved, from ox bone, so each piece will have its own unique characteristics and subtle differences, although you should find that the pictured pendant is an accurate representation of the pendant you receive.
In the Maori culture of New Zealand, the whale tail represents speed, strength, and the connection between man and whales, or in a broader sense, all of wildlife and nature. It also represents protection, specifically in water, as whales, dolphins, and humans have a unique relationship in the ocean. Whale tail pendants are often worn by surfers, stand up paddlers, kayakers, and other water enthusiasts.
