A real beauty!
Handmade matau pendant carved from a very distinctive piece of New Zealand Flower jade.
This is a real show-stopper! A strong pendant, beautifully carved and visually arresting. Take a moment to view the video to appreciate this wonderful rendition of a traditional matau.
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.
The koru is a symbol of new and flourishing growth. Koru pendants are gifted and worn as an expression of personal growth, an awakening and rejuvenation. This is a very beautiful piece that beautifully reflects these sentiments.
