WAKA PAHĪ - a beautiful polished flower jade matau pendant.
We've named this piece after a traditional deep-water canoe that Māori used when travelling offshore. They were fantastic navigators and possessed enormous courage travelling over long distances navigating by the stars. The matau is believed to offer protection when travelling over water, so they held a significant position as a protector.
These are beautifully carved from colourful flower jade with greens, rusty orange and a hint of deep blue - a real reflection of the land this jade has come from.
Handmade Hei-Matau (hook) pendant carved from distinctive New Zealand Flower Jade.
The Hook: 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.
