Maori Mataui Fish Hook pendant


| /

Maori Maui style hook pendant carved from cow bone with Paua Shell 

5cm long

Originally the Maori have been fishermen. Their main food source was the sea so a fish hook of high quality was a valuable item to posses.

Worn around the neck the hook became a symbol of prosperity, abundance, good health, power, authority, and respect for the sea and its life in it. It is also believed to provide good luck and safety while traveling over water.

The Maori fish hook symbol refers to being dependent on the sea for their food gathering. The matau is a talisman for good luck.
