A hand carved bone fish hook necklace or "Hei-Matau" in Maori.

It includes a waxed braid cord with hand carved bone toggle, a traditional woven presentation case and a detailed description of the meaning of the carving.

Sizes Available Are:    
Medium = 50mm Long (2 Inches)   
Small = 40mm Long (1.6 Inches) 
Includes free international post shipping worldwide.     

The Maori people were great mariners and fishermen so the Matau is therefore one of the most powerful symbols used in Maori culture as it represents prosperity, abundance and fertility.
It also is said to provide good luck and safety when traveling over water.
The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life.
