The MANAIA carving meaning is that of a spiritual guardian. It's form is usually made up of the head of a bird, the body of a man, and the tail of a fish. This represents the relationship and balance between sky (the bird), earth (the man), and sea (fish). MAORI believe the Manaia looks after the spirit of the individual wearing it, and helps to guide the spirit to its final resting place upon death.
That is why the Manaia is seen as a guardian angel.

This stunning art frame would make an excellent gift to present to overseas visitors, or if you are travelling overseas. An appreciation gift, corporate gift or even your own home decoration. Much more impressive in real life.
