Paua Carving Wall hanging kit.


Designed by Mary Metcalf.

A re-design of one of Mary's popular wall hangings now available in the shades of our beautiful Paua shell.

The kitset includes the pattern plus the fabric for the front, back and binding.  All you need is to add is the batting and some threads.

Wall hanging size: 13" x 29½" (33cm x 75cm).

The maori have long carved their fish hooks and pendants from pounamu (greenstone) or bone. 
This wall hanging shows three distinct types of carving and each has a meaning.

Hei-Matau are often seen as good luck charms especially if the wearer is traveling over water. The single twist amulet shows the joining together of two people for eternity. The koru represents the fern frond as it opens bringing new life and purity to the world.
 
100% quality cotton and batik fabrics.
