A beautifully bound and hand carved hook pendant made from whalebone. This is a wonderful piece, softly rounded and with a marvellous feel. The front is quite smooth while the back shows the porous structure of whalebone - check out the short video to appreciate the shape and variation in colour in this pendant.
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.
Whale bone is porous and will absorb body oils. It will take on a golden colour over time.
We provide this pendant with a plaited, natural tan cord which is adjustable in the length. Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
