Hei Matau

This is my souvenir/holiday gift from my parents from their trip to New Zealand. I wanted to share it on this blog not only because of its beauty but because of all the meaning behind the shape.

It is hand-carved by the Maori and the shape is called Fishhook. It is a "device for catching good luck & positive energy. It provides a safe journey, especially over water & represents strength, peace, prosperity & good health."

And its absolutely gorgeous too! What more could I ask for?
