Bone Maori Single Twist Pendants
The Maori single twist (pikorua) is a very popular symbol. It is a symbol that signifies love and friendship.
Single twist pendants resemble the bond between two people, two lives intertwined, the paths of love and life. That’s why it is also called the ‘two person friendship pendant’.
The twisted shape perfectly represents the meaning of friendship. Or as Aristotle said: “What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies”.
Because it resembles a relationship for eternity it makes it a perfect gift for lovers, newlyweds, and fiancees. (Click the picture for more info, buying, and more bone single twist pendants).
The typical entanglement has no beginning or end which refers to the eternal character of this bond. This is why the single twist is often given as a present to beloved ones who , for whatever reason, will be separated from their friends, family, or lovers. The pendant is a reminder that how far away the other person may be, their bond still exists. The denomination; “The path of love and life” also refers to this symbolic meaning.
