Authority. Prosperity. Safe journeys. The indigenous Maori people of New Zealand associate these words with their tribal fishhook symbol today just as they did 1000 years ago. Our contemporary men's Hei Matau bone fishhook rope necklace proudly carries on the symbolic legacy of the Maori's ageless survival tool.

This long-hooked Hei Matau fishhook is handcrafted from creamy white animal bone and polished to a glossy finish. The thick bone has natural markings that add to its organic look. The long point and short barb of the hook's white curve resemble a bright crescent moon, just like the one that guided ancient Maori ocean voyagers.

Your body will project its warmth into the bone pendant until it feels like part of your physical being. Maori tradition holds that bone jewelry absorbs the essence, or "mana," of the one who wears it. Meaning you and your Hei Matau bone fishhook rope necklace will form a spiritual bond that will last a lifetime.

Size: The pendant measures 1 1/2 inches tall and 1 1/8 inches wide. The rope cord is 27 inches long and 3/32 inch thick.

Material: Genuine Buffalo Bone. Black Braided Rope.
