Lusitanica Fish Hook 'Matau ika nui'
Lusitanica fish hook carved and inlaid with green glass
Garden Art, Home Decor, Kiwiana
DescriptionThe fish hook is central to our islands, as legend has it that Maui, the great fisherman, pulled a huge fish from the ocean with a bone hook, and it became Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud.
This piece is carved in recycled windfallen Lusitanica, a type of cypress, from a local orchard. It has been inlaid with large pieces of green glass to beautiful effect, and protected with a very durable coating.
Indoors or outdoors
Dimensions: H370mm x W330mm x D25mm
All wall art comes with a hook attached, ready to hang
Made from recycled material and transformed into art
Our artwork and signs are hand finished so each piece is one of a kind. Other versions of the same design in stock may have minor variations in sizing, timber, colours etc. If your order comes through in a similar time frame to others for the same piece, we will offer you a similar one if we have one in stock, or we may be able to make a new one for you with the added benefit of small personal choice variations (to be discussed)
