Mata Hoata necklace ∿ 4
Mata Hoata was hand-carved in oceania rosewood and it comes with an elegant, adjustable black line. This piece displays the fundamental element in Marquesan culture – Mata Tiki (the eye of a Tiki). Tiki represents etua (god) deified ancestors whose supernatural powers sustain and protect the community – and the eyes were the most powerful element of the face.
