Toki Pounamu Pendant

By Aaron Brown
 

Greenstone and pounamu toki have a spiritual meaning associated with strength (mana).

This stunning pounamu pendant has been handcarved in a contemporary design.

Pounamu plays a very important role in Māori culture. It is considered a taonga (treasure). Pounamu taonga increase in mana (prestige) as they pass from one generation to another. It is only found in the South Island of New Zealand.

Traditionally pounamu is always given as a gift to be treasured.

I have loved making art objects for as long as I can remember.

At school I rapidly got rid of subjects that weren’t art related or didn’t fit my view of “useful”.

When I left school I spent two years studying character animation which gave me an appreciation for “flow” in design.

Since then I have been self taught. My path has taken me from bone carvings to architectural model making, sculpting figurines and busts (for toy/hobby companies and museums), and then into bronze sculptures and Jade carving.

I’m enjoying exploring and developing my work and what I can offer the world we live in.
