*New Zealand’s Legend -Tangaroa’s Gift
After taking pity of a homely sea creature, Tangaroa , god of the sea, Blessed the little Paua with this
breathtakingly beautiful Shell. Pulling the most magnificent colors from the Sunsets, the forests and the ocean.
This caused great jealousy and the paua was attacked by the other sea creatures. Tangaroa once again intervened,
strengthening the Paua’s shell with layers and layers of these vibrant colors. To hide the Paua, Tangaroa made the
top coat look like a rock. Its not until Paua dies and is washed ashore that its inner beauty is revealed.
