Decorative ceramic hanging Huia feather. Perfect on any wall. Each feather is individually hand made in Northland by ceramic artist Michelle Bow using locally sourced clay. The now extinct Huia was a rare and beautiful species of New Zealand wattlebire confined to the Ruahine, Tararua, Rimutaka and Kaimanawa mountain ranges in the south-east of the North Island. The Huia was regarded by Maori as tapu (sacred) and the wearing of its skin or feathers was reserved for people of high status  It represents a precious token of friendship and respect, symbolising leadership and mana.

Each feather comes with a swing tag explaining it's meaning.
