A hand carved and stained 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.

Size:
Large 55mm Long (2.25 Inches)
Includes free international post shipping worldwide. 

Once sold out this design will be removed from our gallery permanently.

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.

Please note:
Natural stained carvings are not color fast in water so do not swim or shower wearing a stained carving.
