Hawaiian Fish Hook Tribal Necklace Design - Single Barbed Hook Bone Carving
The Hei Matau single barbed hook is derived from the original Maori tribal hook. The Hei Matau is beautifully hand-crafted and is traditionally made from whale bone, however, the Maori Man necklaces are custom carved necklaces made entirely out of recycled Ox bone and hemp. On the front side of the Hei Matau fish hook features a intricate hand carved detail design. The Maori bone carving is attached using a durable cord that is a adjustable braided hemp line, that comes with solid adjustment beads to fit almost any size. Wear it close to your neck as a choker or longer as a pendant/necklace.
The Meaning of the Fish Hook - Makau
This symbol is a synonym of a connection between us and the ocean. The Makau on its own is very distinct, appealing pendant that symbolizes energy and it allows you to maintain the tradition of the Aloha spirit alive.
