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.
The finish is a soft matte - it has a gorgeous satiny feel in the hand and is lovely worn - a piece of New Zealand on its' way home to you!
Take a moment to view the photos and video we have taken of PATIENCE, they reveal the serious beauty of this lovely piece.
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.
