A hand carved and stained bone fish hook necklace or "Hei-Matau" in Maori.

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.

Please note:
Natural stained carvings are not color fast in water so do not swim or shower wearing a stained carving.
