This Pacific black oyster mother-of-pearl shell pendant features an engraved design inspired by the traditional pūhoro pattern that adorns waka (canoes) and is seen in Ta Moko. By blending contemporary form with classic Māori artistry and flair, it resonates with both the present and the past, exuding authenticity and deep cultural significance.

The pūhoro design is reminiscent of the ripples and swirls created by a paddle strike, propelling the waka through water. It symbolizes agility, speed, and dexterity, qualities essential for a warrior. Additionally, the design represents movement, journey, and the momentum of life.

Revolution Aotearoa, created by visual artist and musician Wiremu Barriball, represents a range of authentic Māori design products deeply connected to New Zealand's natural tāonga.

Drawing inspiration from his Māori lineage and his work as a Tā Moko practitioner, Wiremu aesthetically blends nostalgic concepts into modern forms. With a career in the music industry spanning 30+ years, which includes the roll as the lead guitarist of the world-renowned band Katchafire, Its only natural that influences from his love and passion for music often show through in his art.

Revolution Aotearoa is proudly created in NZ from a true creative talent.
