The Manaia is an ancient mythical being with a birds head and a human form. It is said to be the messenger between the earthly world of mortals and the domain of the spirits illustrating the strong links the Maori have with spirituality and the spirit world. It is a holder of great spiritual energy and is a guardian against evil.
The Manaia is often depicted with the three fingers of birth, life and death.
There may be a variation in colour from the Wood Carving pictured in the photo as its a natural product.
