Large Dark Jade Matau by John Kerwin

  • $265

A large hand crafted Matau pendant carved in very dark New Zealand Jade or Pounamu with a traditional satin finish by John Kerwin.   
The extraordinary jade used for this piece is so dark it looks black in the hand but hold it up to a light and you will see the hidden apple green glow.  

It includes an adjustable waxed braid cord, a traditional woven presentation case and a detailed description of the meaning of the carving.     

78mm Long (3.1 Inches) 
Includes Express Courier Delivery Worldwide.     

This is a unique one of a kind custom piece so it will be removed from our gallery permanently when sold.   

The Maori people were great mariners and fishermen so the Matau is therefore one of the most powerful symbols used in Maori culture as it represents prosperity, abundance and fertility.     
It also is said to provide good luck and safety when traveling over water.     
The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life.
