Hei Matau Hook

Made in New Zealand

Description The hei-matau is a beautifully stylized fish hook handmade from Arataki, New Zealand. The new age understanding of the design is that it represents strength, good luck, and safe travel across water. The fish-hook shape of the hei matau finds its origins in Māori legend, which holds that the North Island of New Zealand was once a huge fish that was caught by the great mariner Maui using only a woven line and a hook made from the jawbone of his grandmother. The fish hook denotes the importance of fishing to the Maori people of New Zealand, and their strong relationship to Tangaroa, the god of the sea.
