The fishhook is one of the most prevalent symbols used in Maori carving. It is a talisman for strength, determination, and prosperity. It is also a good symbol for anyone who has an affinity with water. Fishhooks are often given as a sign of friendship and respect, or when someone is embarking on a journey. This design also incorporates two korus (ferns) in the negative space of the carving. The korus add the element of spiritual growth, as well as relationship and connection.
