Legend holds that the north island of New Zealand
was once a huge fish caught by Maui, the Great Mariner,
using only a woven line and a bone hook.
The fish hook remained lodged in the side of the fish and
can be seen today in Hawke's Bay.
For the Maori, the Hei Matau represents
Strength, Prosperity, Fertility
and a great respect for the Sea.
It is believed to grant Safe Passage Over Water
and has special significance as a gift.
