A hand carved woolly mammoth fish hook necklace (hei-matau) carved in a traditional style from Woolly Mammoth Tusk. Take a moment to view the video, these pieces have a lovely shape, and a gorgeous grain, that is revealed as they rotate.
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.
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.
We have bound this with our adjustable cord. Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
