The Porohita / disc represents the circle of life which has no beginning or end.  In life the opportunities are endless so with this pendant you can achieve whatever you want to in life. 

The back of the Porohita is shaped/scalloped so that it is comforting to rub while it is worn.

It also has a traditional ridge-knot binding along the top.  This was one of the bindings used by the Maori to attach the pounamu to wooden and bone handles to use as tools and weapons. 

The Porohita is carved from pounamu we have collected from the Rimu area just outside of Hokitika on the West Coast of the South Island. 

The Porohita has a waxed nylon cord so the pendant can be worn ALL the time.  It has four strands of cord that have been hand platted into a special, round, 4-plait. The cord is adjustable by pinching the special knots between your thumb and finger and pulling.  

The Porohita is 44mm in diameter.
