The Hei Matau is a bone or stone carved in the form of a stylized hook, typical of the Maori people in New Zealand.

Much of the Maori mythology is based on the sea, they crossed the Pacific Ocean in canoes to find New Zealand, fishing to survive these long and dangerous trips.

The legend says that the North Island in New Zealand was a huge fish that was captured by the great sailor Maui using only a hatched line and a hook made with his grandmother's jaw.

For the Maori the Hei Matau is a cultural treasure, not only represents its land, but also prosperity, fertility and safe passage over water.
