A beautifully carved bone matau. This piece has lovely traditional, decorative detail - it is finely engraved and culminates in a graceful whaletail.
The whale is revered in Māori mythology. They were called upon for protection and guidance on the long canoe journey's to New Zealand. There is an oral record of interactions between people and whales and they have taken on a mythical and prized status for many here in New Zealand and the wider South Pacific.
So this is a fabulous gift for someone who loves the ocean - and maybe that's you!
We will deliver this pendant on a hand plaited, adjustable cord and will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
