Large Marsden Flower Matau, New Zealand Greenstone

Large Marsden Flower Matau, New Zealand Greenstone

Regular price $825.00 Sale

 The matau is modelled on the shape of a fish hook - such as the one used by Maui, a figure in Maori mythology, to fish up the North Island (Te Ika a Maui). It is a symbol of strength, good luck and safe travel, especially across water. 

 Marsden Flower Greenstone comes from the Marsden area of the West Coast of New Zealand. The gold-coloured variegation in the piece is called "flower" and makes this type of greenstone particularly valued and distinctive.

Genuine New Zealand greenstone.
