Fish Hook by Thom with Tapa Design Type 3
Ancient Hawai’ians made Fish Hooks (makau) from materials, such as shell, bone or hardwood. Makau are said to represent strength and fortune, bring good luck, and identify wearers as good providers. This hand engraved, sketchbook designed, extra large piece retains the unmistakable makau shape under the luster of solid sterling silver with a contrasting enamel overlay. You can choose to put the provocative tapa design forward, or the intricately engraved "plain" side.
Tapa (kapa) was one of the main textiles throughout Polynesia used for clothing and decoration. The tapa patterns of old bring into the modern age the aesthetics of the past.
