This Greenstone Maori Fish Hook Necklace is small and beautifully carved. Lots of details for such a small carving, a testament to the skills of the carver.
The carving is made in the shape of a traditional Maori fish hook, with fins signifying the importance of the fish in the Maori diet, and the end of the hook shaped as the symbol of the hammerhead shark.
The fish hook necklace, the hei matau, carries a spiritual meaning. It represents peace, prosperity, and good health, as well as safe travel over water. So you can give it as a gesture of good will towards the receiver. And it is the perfect gift for the fisherman, boatie, swimmer, surfer and diver.
The fish hook carving measures approximately 3.1cm (1 1/4") long, and rests on a long black adjustable cord. It comes to you on a descriptive card, so you can always remember its spiritual meaning.
