Kahurangi Rei Niho - Maori Pounamu Whale Tooth Pendant

Sands Carving Studio


Rei puta are chiefly taonga traditionally carved from the teeth of Tohorā (whale). Rei niho carved from pounamu maintains the beauty of the traditional form, symbolising the intimate connection between Maori and Tohorā.

It is hung by an adjustable hand platted cord.

This piece was hand carved by Jeremy Walsh and measures 70 x 31 x 6mm.
