Taniwha are highly respected ‘Atua’, protective guardian spirits of people and places.

Taniwha are described as being lizard-like in form, and dangerous man-eaters. The most fearsome type had the power to take any shape, was possessed of supernatural powers and lived underwater in dark, deep holes. The Maori revered these mighty Taniwha and viewed them as the mascots of their tribe.

This unique Taniwha pendant has been carved in the shape of the ‘koru’. It has the head of the Kiwi bird and Paua shell inlay set as the stars of the Southern Cross.

The koru is a spiral shape based on the appearance of a new unfurling silver fern frond. It is an integral symbol in Māori art, carving, and tattooing, where it symbolizes new life, growth, strength, and peace.
