A lovely, smaller matau pendant carved from distinctive New Zealand Flower jade.

This is a small but visually strong pendant, beautifully carved and with a traditional binding. We have named this piece Kingfisher after that wonderful bird that is such an observant and deadly fisherman.

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.
