An Ancient Symbol of Strength

Tahi Jewelry draws on the rich tradition of Maori jewelry to create stunning modern designs. This stunning silver pendant is a Hei Matau, or Maori fish hook design.

The Hei Matau design represents strength, fertility, good luck and prosperity. The origin of the Hei Matau can be traced back to the legend of the Demigod Maui who fished up the North Island of New Zealand using only a bone hook and a woven line. The Hei Matau is often worn in New Zealand and around the world, by Maori and non-Maori alike, as it is also linked to a safe passage over water. Although Hei Matau is a common design, there are as many variations as there are its creators. This particular Hei Matau is named Ika, or fish, as the inner loop of the Hei Matau flicks gracefully like the tail of a fish.

Maori consider Hei Matau to be special treasures, which are handed down through the generations. The perfect gift for the traveler, or a lucky charm to help ensure a safe journey for yourself, this Hei Matau is sure to be treasured.
