A large, hand carved whalebone hei-matau. A pendant with real presence, carved in the spirit of the mighty mammal it is crafted from. KANUKA is carved from the rib and it displays the beautiful grain typical of this bone.

A fabulous gift, or pendant for you - either way this will become someone's companion in life!

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.

Whale bone is a porous material (that's what gives it the beautiful grain) and will absorb body oils. It will take on a golden colour over time.

We provide this pendant with a plaited, Fern Green cord which is adjustable in the length. Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.

For sale in New Zealand only.
