Hei Matua (Fish Hook)

In Maori mythology, New Zealand was fished up out of the sea by Maui. Used skilfully, the fish hook provides bounty from the sea and represents abundance and plenty, strength and determination. Symbolically it is a device for catching good luck and energy, and is believed to bring peace, prosperity and good health. Wearing the fish hook is said to provide safe travel over water so is considered a good luck charm by travellers, boaties, fishermen and surfers.
