Maori Fish Hook Necklace Stylized Aged Bone.

Design: Fish Hook, Hei Matau, Makau

Material Used: Hand carved, solid bone.

Size 60mm (6.0cm) 2.3 Inchs

Meaning: The fish hook, hei matau, Maori; makau, Hawaiian, represents not only the land but good luck, prosperity, abundance, and safe passage--especially over water.

Other Info: Comes on a one size fits all, hand braided, adjustable cord. This is suitable for those who like pieces on the larger side.

Item is presented in a hand woven, natural fiber gift pouch.

The fish-hook shape of the hei matau finds its origins in Maori legend, which holds that the North Island of New Zealand was once a huge fish that was caught by the great mariner Maui using only a woven line and a bone hook. Legend holds that the shape of Hawkes Bay is that of the hei matau, which caught in the fish's side. For the Maori, the hei matau is taonga (a cultural treasure). It represents not only their land, but also prosperity, fertility and safe passage over water.
