We love the fanciful flair of this striking large Matau. Kerry has hand crafted this piece from Wyoming Black Jade and has finished CURIOSITY in a soft polish.
A standout piece, wonderfully carved that can be worn by anyone - the finish on this piece is flawless. It will make a lifelong companion, and become a family heirloom. We have one only.
The matau, or hook pendant is revered throughout the South Pacific as a symbol for life, well-being and prosperity. Its significance arises from the key role that fishing has played in sustaining island families and communities. The owner of a good hook was respected and held a place of authority in the community.
CURIOSITY is provided with a fixed length cord and Black Jade toggle. If you would like an adjustable cord, or a different coloured cord with the loop and toggle - please let us know in the comments section at checkout.
Take a look at the video and you will appreciate the artistry of this beautiful piece.
Also included, our 'Kia ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
DELIVERY WITH DHL EXPRESS COURIER IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE.
