A beautiful New Zealand Jade Matau necklace hand carved, framed and signed by Kerry Thompson.

A beautifully carved and presented matau, this is a piece of carved art that will take its place on your wall and in your family's story.

This design is Kerry's interpretation of the traditional hook design. He has added flourish and grace into what is a very practical form - the result is a gorgeous piece of wall art. Kerry uses a dual polishing technique that brings out the nuance in his designs. You will find yourself returning to study this time and again!

This is one of 7 Framed Artworks we have from renowned New Zealand artist, Kerry Thompson.

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.
