Hawaiian Genuine Koa Wood Fish Hook Necklace Featuring New Zealand Paua and Turquoise Inlay

Material Used: Hand carved, Genuine Hawaiian Koa Wood,New Zealand Paua,Turquoise

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.

Size: 5.2 cm  (52mm)  2.0 inches

Other Info: Comes on a one size fits all, hand braided  cord with sliding slip knots for adjusting. 

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.
