A pendant from the heart - hand carved from whalebone, this is a pendant with a soft appearance but a tough heart. A great pendant if you're looking for something finely crafted, with lovely detail.
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 quite porous and will absorb body oils. It will take on a golden colour over time. Local belief would say that the pendant becomes a part of you.
