The fishhook is one of the most prevalent symbols used in Maori carving. It is a talisman for strength and prosperity; and is also a good symbol for anyone with an affinity for water. The fishhook is often given as a mark of friendship and respect. It is also traditional to give this carving to someone who is embarking on a journey. This design also incorporates two fern forms (koru), representing relationship and connection.
This carving was carved using a cross section of the walrus tusk, and it features the raw edges of the natural material.
