This is a pounamu that is part of a larger set. The set was made for a childrens book that my wife created. There is one pounamu for each page of the book. The main page for this is called Sand in my toes salt in my nose and you can see all the artwork and pounamu there. The book is available for purchase at rosalindpotter.com, along with prints of the art, all done by our good friend Ginney Deavoll.
This represents the concept of journey. Life is a journey and we are constantly making progress in various directions on our own journey. This piece is to remind us to enjoy the journey, not to get caught up in the destination.
