Intricately Carved Black Huia Feather Earrings.
Size of the bone part only: 19mm x 63mm
This bone carving earring is a beautiful piece of Maori jewellery. These Maori earrings have been handcrafted from beef bone, with black staining. Each carving is supplied loose in a plastic bag. Each piece is individually carved so slight variations can occur.
For Māori, the huia feather was revered as a symbol of nobility, leadership, and hierarchy. The white-tipped tail feathers were worn as head adornments to signify chiefs and people of great mana (authority and power).
