The Hei-Matau is a beautiful stylish fish hook representing strength, good luck and safe travel across water in Maori culture.
They can be carved from pounamu (greenstone) and worn as an ornament or made from ceramic, like these ones.
Hook B measures 27 x 10cms and Hook J measures 23 x 13cms and they both look great hanging on the wall. The finish on them will differ slightly as each firing produces slightly different results.
Made by Stepa Ceramics in Napier.
