This unique design has been carved in to a Mako/Tooth Shield where the shark tooth and a shield come together as one has been made from top quality New Zealand Marsden Pounamu and is bound with a black waxed adjustable cord.
The shark tooth design represents strength. This is because the Mako shark is such a resilient, strong creature that has survived on earth for thousands of years. The thinking is that by wearing a 'tooth' of the shark, it will impart some of this resilience onto the wearer.
The shield gives the wearer strength and offers them protection through their life.
