EBB AND FLOW - a beautiful little New Zealand Jade Matau pendant.
A classic piece carved by Master jade carver - Ross Crump. Ross has a unique ability to bring out the very best in the piece of jade he's working with - this is very evident with this piece - beautiful smooth, gentle lines, the tail carved with a little swing so the jade becomes light and translucent. This is carved from marvellous New Zealand Kahurangi jade - a beautiful, semi-translucent pale green jade.
The matau, or hook pendant is revered throughout the South Pacific as a symbol for life, well-being and prosperity. Its significance arises from the key role that fishing has played in sustaining island families and communities. The owner of a good hook was respected and held a place of authority in the community.
We will provide this pendant with a hand-plaited cord which is length adjustable.
We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card explaining the meaning behind the hook design.
