The Hei Matau is a bone or stone carved in the shape of a stylized hook, typical of the Maori people in New Zealand.

Much of Maori mythology is based on the sea, they crossed the Pacific Ocean in canoes to find New Zealand, fishing to survive these long and dangerous journeys.

Legend has it that the North Island in New Zealand was a huge fish that was caught by the great sailor Maui using only a weaved line and a hook made from his grandmother's jawbone.

For the Maori, the Hei Matau is a cultural treasure, not only does it represent their land, but also prosperity, fertility and safe passage over the water.
