Carved from deer antler this handmade fish hook necklace (hei-matau) is a traditional style, but with some beautiful added detailing. This necklace is delivered resting in the antler crown that it was carved from, but can (and should) be taken out and worn as a pendant. It is beautifully bound with a waxed braided cord with bone toggle.
In New Zealand Maori tradition the fish hook represents prosperity, abundance, strength and determination and is also worn to show a respect for the ocean. Wear this amulet for safety when travelling, particularly over water.
This is a very striking and meaningful carving by Len Kay.
