Breastplate pendant created from nephrite jade, pounamu, sourced from Aotearoa/New Zealand. Carved with styalised koru form.
The breastplate represents traditional protective armour of warriors. Koru represents new life and new beginnings.
Originally a breastplate was a part of medieval armor or clothing to protect the front of the body. Thus the breastplate is associated with protection and longevity.
Small breastplates have been used by indigenous societies as status symbols and as religious icons.
