Pendant Ribbonwood Kokako Necklace by Tania Tupu

Te Kokako is whanau to the saddleback and Huia. A beautiful songbird that has sadly declined in numbers.  

Named after their beautiful song, Kokako is considered sacred by many Maori.

In Maori myth, the kokako filled its wattles with water and brought it to Maui as he fought the sun. Maui rewarded the bird by making its legs long and slender, enabling it to bound through the forest with ease.

Te Kokako is wearing a kakahu ribbonwood flora laced with a taniko border. 

DIMENSIONS: 2.5cm x 7.5cm. Chain 60cm. Each chain has an extender of 10cm for length flexibility.
CHAIN: Rose Gold Plated Stainless
