AVENGER - A winged fish hook necklace (hei-matau) handcarved in a unique style, with some beautiful detailing to add a little flair!

The necklace cord is hand plaited and length adjustable. It has a couple of slip knots that will allow you to position the piece where it suits you best.

The hook is made from cow bone. It is a tough and resilient material and doesn't require a lot of attention to take care of - just the occasional rinse in fresh water, and a wipe with a dry cloth or kitchen paper.

In New Zealand Maori tradition the fish hook represents prosperity, abundance, strength and determination and is also worn to show a respect for the ocean. Wear this amulet for safety when travelling, particularly over water.

We will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
