Jasper Ruru / Morepork
Jasper ruru /morepork
I call this piece the blood ruru. This mainly clicked due to the colour which gets its redness from iron – the same as our blood. In our culture blood is often associated with violence or shown for its shock value but it’s essence is really life giving and positive.
I found this piece of jasper in one of the rivers on the Coromandel peninsula. The shape of the final carving was dictated by the natural found shape.
Material – Jasper (Coromandel, NZ)
Size – 75mm high
Hand plaited (by my son) adjustable grey cord.
Shipping is free within NZ / Australia and a flat $20 NZD worldwide.
