This ocean design represents connection to water. The Maori believe that water is the carrier of spirits; and the ocean is regarded as a place with with great mana (spirit and strength). In this sense, water also has a calming, healing energy which is reflected in this carving by a stylized hand which represents drawing strength from the ocean. Originally, I carved this piece as a tribute to a young girl who struggled with cancer. This design is made from Red Deer Coronet from the South Island of New Zealand.
