"The Bulford Kiwi was created in 1919 by New Zealand troops waiting to go home at the end of World War One. Originally carved as a chore to occupy the hours of waiting for a ship back to New Zealand, it became an emblem to be proud of and a cherished link to home. For many of those involved in its construction, and later its resurrection, the Bulford Kiwi came to represent all those servicemen who had passed through Sling Camp, especially those who would never go home"–Back cover.

Mindful beads : 20 inspiring ideas for stringing and personalizing your own mala and prayer beads, plus their meanings / Peck, Alice
"Strings of beads are universal to all peoples and beliefs. They're given many names – mala, rosary, misbahah, komboloi, prayer beads – but no matter the culture or context, they're a tangible symbol of connection. Beads can tell a story, celebrate someone or something we love, or help us work through a difficulty. They can be made from a huge variety of materials, but it's not so much what beads you string but why and how you string them that is important. In Mindful Beads, Alice Peck reveals the meanings behind 20 different types of beads, from traditional Tibetan malas to healing crystals, and Greek worry beads to Christian rosaries. For each one, she strings her own bracelet, mala, rosary or necklace, giving it a significance personal to her, and then explains how you can do so for your own beads, suggesting ways to meditate with and become connected to them. Some beads are handmade and step-by-step artworks are provided to explain how to make them, while a resources section offers advice on sourcing store-bought beads"–Amazon website.
