MAORI Style "Hei Matau"

 FISH HOOK NECKLACES

These are beautifully hand carved cow bone (white), cow horn (black) (Page 1)

Jade (green), natural Koa wood, or woolly mammoth ivory (ivory) (Page 2)

in the traditional Maori fish hook called Hei Matau.  

This shape represents strength, prosperity, abundance and fertility.  Wearing it is a sign of respect for the sea and its creatures, so it is also regarded as a good luck charm providing protection and safety while traveling over water.

It is also given as a mark of friendship and respect.

The Maori people of New Zealand are the oldest known culture renowned for these graceful designs, though these are carved in the Philippines with the same beauty & quality.

Photos below are STOCK PHOTOS, with QUANTITIES AVAILABLE, unless individually stated otherwise.

MAORI STYLE BONE NECKLACES

CIRCLE OF LIFE

Extremely well made and meaningful; Flat on back, on braided double strand waxed natural cording is a sliding knot necklace from 30" extended length to as small as you need.  1-1/2" diameter.

The CIRCLE is an ancient and universal symbol of unity, wholeness, infinity.  Gnostic traditions linked the unbroken circle to the "world serpent" forming a circle as it eats its own tail.  The circle symbol meaning is universal, sacred and divine.  It represents the infinite nature of energy, and the inclusivity of the universe.  

Our ancient kin observed a circular aspect to the cycles of time, specifically in the movements of the seasons, the integration of energy and matter - spirit and man, combining for the purpose of greater spiritual understanding and evolution. 

Albert Einstein spoke indirectly of it when he said that energy cannot be created or destroyed; it merely changes form.  

Most often when one talks about the "Circle of Life", it indicates that everything in existence participates in this great cycle, including Earth itself.
