Henua Enana Metau (Marquesan hook)

The hook is one of the most recognizable symbols of whole Polynesia. It contains significant cultural meaning as well as a sense of belonging to Polynesia. The hook is a symbol of energy, strength, prosperity, abundance, and good luck. Since the Polynesian livelihood is very much dependent on the ocean waters, the fish hook necklace signifies deep respect and love towards the oceans.

This authentic hook was hand-carved in oceanic rosewood and it displays a range of traditional Marquesan symbols from the island of Nuku Hiva. It comes with an elegant, adjustable black line.
