Named after the deepest oceanic trench on earth! This is a strong pendant with tons of character. The bone colour is very consistent and tight grained. It is a lovely creamy white colour with a very slight tan stain.

This is a beautifully carved piece - it is sleek and strong with a balanced form that gives it a real edgy presence.

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.

We deliver this pendant on a hand plaited, adjustable cord and will include our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
