The stone this kākano has been shaped from was gifted to the artist, so it brings with it a spirit of generosity and contribution that will carry forth to the wearer.
The strength of this kākano (seed) is that it emerged from the natural shape of the stone. A seed represents the limitless potential of growth, and with growth comes imperfection. So the carver has chosen to retain some of the grain, cracks, things that would usually be thought of as imperfections but contribute to the honesty of the piece. A beautiful piece to adorn someone who grows vulnerably and with beauty.
