The Maori people were great mariners and fishermen so the Matau is, therefore, one of the most powerful symbols used in Maori culture as it represents prosperity, abundance and fertility.
It also is said to provide good luck and safety when travelling over water.
The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong-willed and determined to succeed in life.
