The single figure eight represents the path of life, it is the eternity symbol. It is based on the crisscross of the kete (woven basket) where the path of life in spite of situations and differences continues and time is unstoppable.
Luke Gardiner, this self-taught artist, finds his inspiration in nature and has been re-creating it’s beauty in greenstone for over a decade. His connection with the wairua (spirit) of the land is evident in each of his designs, infusing his artwork with a peaceful, protective aura.
A vital part of his artistic process is to carefully assess each piece of jade before he decides which design it will best suit.
Due to nature of the stone the colour may vary.
