This is a lovely piece that we think screams LOVE!! It is hand carved from whalebone - sperm whale that washed up on the coast of New Zealand. We were particularly taken with colour and tight grain on the one side contrasting the coarser look on the back. AROHA has a beautiful texture in the bone. 

We bound this with a Kalahari Tan Cord and a Burgundy Binding - it looks pretty stunning.

The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life - what a lovely sentiment to gift to someone important to you.

Whale bone is quite porous and will absorb body oils. It will take on a golden colour over time.

Included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.

For Sale in New Zealand only.
