The traditional matau or hook shape has a long history in Polynesia - they were used as a practical tool for fishing and were often decorated as a sign of respect for the creatures of the sea. The owner of a good hook was able to provide for the family and village - this brought respect and prosperity.
This pendant is a contemporary design - graceful, beautifully detailed and hand carved.
On one of these pieces we have slightly stained the etching to highlight it. Please use the drop-down menu to select the pendant you'd like to receive.
We will deliver this pendant on a hand plaited black adjustable cord and will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
