POISED TO ATTACK...
PRÊT À ATTAQUER - a small, slightly deadly, hook pendant carved in New Zealand pounamu for us by Ric Moor. It is a traditional design - a shape similar to that we have seen in very old matau carvings.
The jade is a wonderful deep green pounamu. This is a rare jade, loved and valued for its strong, distinctive colour and in this piece, subtle splashes of cloudy coloured inclusions. The cord is a four-plait, adjustable black coloured necklace.
Ric is a craftsman and this piece is a great example of his carving talent. He has finished PRÊT À ATTAQUER with a soft polish that glows and is gorgeous to handle. A pendant to wear all the time.
The Hook - Matau: 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.
Shipped to you with DHL Express Courier and will be provided with our 'Kia Ora Cards' explaining the meaning behind the hook design.
