This Hei Matau Hook Maori Trophy is a lovely piece of carving to place on a shelf or give as a trophy.
The matau represents the fish hook. According to Maori legend, the North Island of New Zealand was once a huge fish that was caught by the great mariner, Maui, using a bone hook on a woven line.
Spiritually, the matau is believed to bring peace, prosperity and good health, and safe travel over water.
This Matau Trophy is made from native matai timber and measures approximately 31.5cm (12 3/8") tall, including the base. The bottom of the base measures approximately 13.5cm x 6.5cm x 4.5cm (5 1/4" x 2 1/2" x 1 3/4"). There is room between the carved Koru for a plaque or laser engraved inscription.
