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 Oceania. 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.

Metau Manu pendant was hand-carved in oceania rosewood. It displays an ancent Marquesan symbol “peka” in the center that symbolizes "etua" - divinity. It has a 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.
