This is a wonderful matau - a lovely balanced design that looks a little deadly! 

This matau was carved for us by Donna Summers. We have named it VAQUERO because it has such an adventurous aura - check it out, it really is a fabulous, beautifully carved pendant.

The jade is a wonderful lush, mid green marsden pounamu. This is a rare jade loved and valued by carvers for its consistency which allows sone very fine work - the tip of this piece a great example of this.

The cord is a four-plait, adjustable olive green.

Donna has finished VAQUERO with a soft polish that glows and is gorgeous to handle. Definitely 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.
