Te Wahi Pounamu - The Place of Greenstone

Manaia - spiritual guardian 

Koru - new beginnings, growth and harmony

The traditional roots of this taonga found in the legend of Maui who used a magical hook to fish up Te Ika-a-Māui - the North Island of Aotearoa.  Contemporarily, the matau has come to represent prosperity, abundance and safe travels across water.
