A simply stunning hand crafted Matau or hook necklace carved in dark New Zealand  Jade or Pounamu by Nick Balme.    

It includes an adjustable plaited waxed braid cord, a traditional style woven presentation bag and a detailed description of the meaning of the carving.    

Size:    
100mm Wide (4 Inches)     
Includes Free DHL International Express Courier Delivery Worldwide.   

This is a unique one off a kind custom piece so it will be removed from our gallery permanently 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.
