A bold, large matau, made by hand from gorgeous New Zealand jade.
This carving exhibits a high level of craftsmanship and is a great example of Ross Crump's skill in carving this tough New Zealand stone. Each of these is an individual and unique piece, hand-carved from our wonderful flower jade. Very strong pendants with a real presence.
A very fine tribute to the matau - which traditionally symbolises a leader, someone who will protect and provide. Perfect to express love, recognise an important anniversary or long-standing friendship, or perhaps to seal an engagement. A fabulous way to ambush someone special!
We will ship these to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited adjustable cord. Please us the drop-down menu to select your piece.
Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Hook (Hei-Matau) design.
