Bone Hei-Matau (Hooks) - Page 1:

These very stylised fish hook bone carvings or pendants represent prosperity,abundance, fertility and strength. They are also seen as good luck charms, particularly for those traveling over water. Hei-Matau are symbols of power and authority which are held in great reverence by the Maori people.

All carvings are supplied complete with a traditional style cord & bag.
Most cords are hand made from black waxed braid with a loop and bone toggle fitted. A woven flax presentation case and information on the meaning of the design is also included.

Featured Artists & Unique or Limited Edition Custom Carvings:

These are very special carvings are often spectacular unique or limited edition pieces in bone, pearl, wood or jade from guest artists and are not part of our normal range.

These often reclusive artists take their inspiration not only from Maori mythology but also from the many other cultures that now share our beautiful land. They also illustrate the deep respect these artists have for the natural and spiritual worlds.

As soon as each carving is sold it will be removed from our site permanently so check for updates often and be quick when you find one that you like, it may be your only chance!!

Wooden Matau

Each piece is crafted by hand so even if following the same design, no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. Unique pieces in bone and pearl can also be designed especially for you, telling your story through traditional styling and some may also include exotic inlays of shell or precious stones.



Wooden Wakahuia Gift BoxWooden Gift Box

Presentation Boxes (Wakahuia)
Available in several styles and sizes are the perfect finishing touch for these carvings

These can be found in our Wood & Wood Carvings section HERE
