A hand carved natural bone fish hook pendant or "Hei-Matau" in Maori by Hepi Maxwell.

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:
50mm Wide (2 Inches)
Includes free shipping worldwide.   

This is a one of a kind piece so 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.
