Lashed Matau: Steller’s Sea Cow

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 carving is carved from a highly colored piece of Steller's Sea Cow bone that has great patterning and texture.
