by Jade City Jade Store | Cassiar Mountain BC
Thie stunning ocean themed piece was hand carved right here in Jade City by Cameron Hewitt.
The Maori people believe that water is an energy, with many moods. It can be calm and life giving, or dangerous and destructive. This energy is called "Tangaroa", God of the Sea.
Message from the carver - "This piece was my attempt at illustrating Tangaroa from the stories I've heard. I have put a lot of ocean themes into this piece, such as a seahorse, whale tail, and paua. I'm really hoping I did it justice"
The piece measures: H 6.5cm W 4.5cm D 0.5cm
