PĀ KAHAWAI - Trolling Lure

This is one of 7 Framed Artworks we have received from renowned New Zealand artist and jade carver - Kerry Thompson.

A beautiful New Zealand Jade Matau carved in New Zealand Pounamu, framed and signed by Kerry Thompson.

Kerry has used a traditional trolling lure - called a Pa Kahawai - as his inspiration for this piece. It is a sleek piece, beautifully crafted, and polished to accentuate the design.

Kerry has framed this the matau in a plain black frame which draws your eye to the carving - it looks very striking on the wall, and brings a little piece of New Zealand into your home.

A little about this design...

The Hook: 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.

PĀ KAHAWAI is sent to you in a wooden shipping box - this is purely to protect the frame while it is one the way to you!

Also included, our 'Kia ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
