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 is a large carving and would be good for someone who wants to make a statement. It can be worn with either side facing out. The photo of the 'back' shows the swirling intensity of the inner dentine of the walrus ivory.
