Bone

Hei-Matau represents prosperity, abundance and fertility.  The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life.  They are worn to protect travelers over water, and are also symbols of power and authority which are held in great reverence by the Maori people.  They were used practically as a tool for fishing and often decorated as a sign of respect for sea creatures.
