FLOW - a beautiful little New Zealand Kahurangi Jade Matau pendant.
A classic piece carved by Master jade carver - Ross Crump. Ross has a unique ability to bring out the very best in the piece of jade he's working with - this is very evident with this piece - beautiful smooth lines, and the tail carved so fine the jade becomes translucent. These are carved from marvellous New Zealand Kahurangi jade - a beautiful, semi-translucent pale green jade.
The matau, or hook pendant is revered throughout the South Pacific as a symbol for life, well-being and prosperity. Its significance arises from the key role that fishing has played in sustaining island families and communities. The owner of a good hook was respected and held a place of authority in the community.
We will provide this pendant with a hand-plaited cord which is length adjustable.
We have two pieces available so please use the drop down menu to select the piece that you would like. Use the cord colour as a guide.
We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card explaining the meaning behind the hook design.
