Bronze Matau Sculpture (AC236)


Beautiful Matau (Fish Hook) sculpture made from a bronze cast with Patina added and set on a Pounamu base. Carved by Allan Moreton.

The Hei Matau represents strength and good health, luck and abundance. It gives protection for travellers especially over water and is considered a good luck charm for anyone with an affinity with the sea.


205 mm length (Matau 191mm

107 mm width (Matau 100mm)

37 mm thickness (Matau 13mm)

This will be the exact piece you will receive in the photos, there may be a slight degree of colour variation based on different computer or mobile phone screen resolutions that you are viewing from.


Pounamu is so much more than a stone. It holds Wairua (spiritual essence) through its association with the land and its beauty. Each piece lends strength and well-being to the wearer, making it a true gift from the heart. Over time, Pounamu absorbs its owners' natural oils and takes on a beautiful lustre. It is then that the stone's essence becomes one with your own and the stone has truly chosen you.

We love the Pounamu we purchased from these guys and really appreciate how they replaced the cord for us a year later.

Your Pounamu should last you a lifetime - and more. Pounamu is said to increase in mana as it is passed on through generations. We guarantee that any Greenstone Shop piece will survive to become an heirloom piece, spreading its mana throughout your whanau if it is well cared for, loved and respected.
