Kawakawa Pounamu Hei Matau - Hook Pendant

Sands Carving Studio


Hei Matau are fish hooks fashioned in the style of Māui. These are symbols of abundance, prosperity, and wealth. They are also considered to provide good luck and safety on water, and are therefore thoughtful gifts for travellers.

This is hung by a black adjustable hand-plaited cord and measures 60 x 35 mm. It was carved by Sam Potter.
