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.

This piece also includes the koru design representing new life and new beginnings.

Carved from treated and polished domestic cow bone.
