Maori handcrafted artisan jewelryThis hand carved bone Hei-Matau necklace is a stylized fish hook pendant. Highly polished and engraved with tribal symbol. The Hei-Matau is a symbol of fertility, strength and prosperity. It is believed to bring you luck when you travel over water. It also represents power and authority.
The bone has been polished until it has the feel of porcelain (it will only feel warmer than porcelain against the skin). Be prepared to answer a lot of questions about this necklace!
Each piece is handmade so even if following the same design, no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. The pendant comes complete with a traditional style cord and a bag. Information on the meaning of the design is also included.
