A Matau to wear and share your GOOD LIFE!
A traditional Hei-Matau made to be worn and enjoyed - while a sizeable piece, GOOD LIFE is finely carved and beautifully light to wear, so this is a piece to put on and leave on.
This matau was carved for us by Ric Moor. A beautiful and contemporary piece of carved art.
The jade is a wonderful lush green pounamu - fine and translucent. This is a rare jade loved and valued for its distinctive colour. The cord is a four-plait, adjustable beige coloured necklace.
GOOD LIFE is a medium sized carving, so can be worn by anyone. Ric is a fine craftsman and this piece is a great example of his carving talent. He has finished GOOD LIFE with a soft polish that glows and is gorgeous to handle.
Watch the brief video we have made of GOOD LIFE slowly revolving. It will reveal all the angles and subtle variations in colour, and maybe help you imagine how this piece will make you feel when you slip it over your head.
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 Express Courier and will be provided with our 'Kia Ora Card' explaining the meaning behind the hook design.
