Hand carved bone matau pendant - ONE ONLY
A strong pendant, beautifully carved and with a traditional binding.
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.
