A large hand crafted traditional Matau pendant carved in New Zealand jade or Pounamu by Nick Balme.  

Complete with an adjustable plaited waxed braid, it also includes a traditional woven presentation case and a detailed description of the meaning of the carving.  

Size:   
90mm Long (3.6 Inches)   
Includes Free Delivery Worldwide.  

This is a one of a kind piece so it will be permanently removed from our gallery when sold.  

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.
