Pounamu Huia couple - finished
This pair of Huia was a commission from a couple in Australia.
The pieces of stone were cut side by side, so you can see how the color change at the bottom flows through both pieces.
As per the client request I made the female slightly larger. I assume the man will wear the female bird and vice versa, a nice thought I think.
I really like the surface finish on this pair.
Pounamu bodies, red NZ jasper wattle and dark Pounamu eyes.
