Pukana drop earrings on sterling silver hooks. Pūkana or facial expressions are an important facet of Māori performance. They help emphasise a point in a song or haka and demonstrate the performer’s ferocity or passion. For women, pūkana involves opening the eyes wide and jutting out their tattooed chin. For men, it means widening the eyes and stretching out their tongue or baring their teeth. Though these expressions may be intimidating, they are not necessarily a sign of aggression, but may simply show strong and deep-felt emotions.

Materials: Resin

Dimensions: 25mm x 30mm. Total drop 40mm
