These very stylized hand crafted New Zealand Maori fish hook bone carvings and 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.
Bone carvings have a very special feel to them, blending with your body over time and taking on part of your spirit to become something very special, a Taonga.
