Koru Hei Matau - Contemporary Bone Fish 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 piece was designed and hand carved from cow bone carved by Peter Mitchell  and is hung by an adjustable hand platted cord. 

The size of this piece is approximately 45 x 38 x 7mm
