Click to enlargeMaori Greenstone Mere

This Mere, or club is the perfect example of the significance of each Maori design. The simple lines and smooth polish hints to the pride that the craftsman has in his work.

This particular Mere is called Wahaika which literally means the mouth of a fish. It basically describes the general shape of this unique weapon's form.

New Zealand Greenstone/Jade is highly prized and rare. It's semi transluscent look and varying depths of design lend to lighter and darker appearances when held up to the light or worn against the skin.

Black waxed cord may be tied to fit individual length preference.

Length of Mere is approximately 2 inches (50 mm) in height.
