A Legendary Symbol of Strength

This silver pendant is based on a traditional Maori jewelry design, the Hei Matau. The origin of the Hei Matau, or Maori fish hook, can be traced back to the legend of the Demigod Maui who fished up the North Island of New Zealand using only a bone fish hook and a woven line. The Hei Matau is a symbol of strength, prosperity, fertility, abundance and it symbolizes a safe journey over water.

Because they may bring good luck, Hei Matau are often worn in New Zealand. While the basic design remains the same, each Hei Matau is still as unique as its creator. This Hei Matau is called Manu meaning bird, as the elegant lines of this piece echo the shape of a fat kereru, or wood pigeon, sitting on a tree branch. Manu has another link with legend, as birds were traditionally thought to be the messengers of the gods.

A silver pendant is an essential accessory. Perhaps the definitive piece of Maori jewelry, the Hei Matau is suitable for both men and women. Whether you wear it every day, or save it for those special occasions, this Hei Matau is sure to impress.
