This Maori Manaia Rimu Wall Art would look fabulous in any home or office. Made primarily of native New Zealand Rimu wood, the wall panel is finely detailed.
The Maori Manaia is a spiritual guardian, and the manufacturer of the wall panel has provided a detailed Manaia description on the back. Here it is:
"The Guardian Spirit (a supernatural being) plays an important role in the Maori world. To the Maori every person on earth has a guardian spirit which can be described as an unseen light surrounding each individual. During life this guardian is a protector from evil and untimely accident. At death the guardian guides the spirit of the departed person safely to a spiritual doorway where it is re-united with the ancestors from the ancient homeland of Hawaiiki. Te Manaia are usually depicted in side profile symbolizing their role as messengers (i.e. partly in the spiritual world and partly in the earthly world). The three fingers and toes have varied tribal meanings. To some they represent birth, life and death, to others they represent the three baskets of knowledge and to yet others, they represent faith, hope and love. Sometimes Te Manaia is depicted with a fourth finger symbolizing the after life".
This Rimu panel is made from recycled NZ Rimu timber. Rimu is a majestic native New Zealand tree with a beautiful red/brown grain, highly sought after to make gifts and furniture.
The Te Manaia Rimu Wall panel measures approximately 29cm x 9.5cm x 0.8cm (11 3/8" x 3 3/4" x 1/4"). It is proudly made in New Zealand.
You can have a gold engraved plaque added to the panel if you wish. If so, choose the engraved option, and enter up to 8 words in the Options box above.
