Metau Kokuu

Metau Kokuu

The hook is one of the most recognizable symbols of Polynesia. It stands for 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.

Metau kokuu necklace was carved in bone. It displays the ancestral Marquesan symbol “etua”. (divinity) This necklace has three black, round, kokuu seed, on each side, which is a local seed, often used throughout history to make traditional Marquesan jewelry. Note: Kokuu seed was emptied and cleaned from the inside, so the black shell can last long and it can be shipped internationally.
