Large Marsden Flower Matau, New Zealand Greenstone
This stunning large matau is carved from a beautiful piece of dark Marsden flower greenstone with lovely pale green at the end. The design is clean and simple, with traditional binding at the top, so you can appreciate the true beauty of the stone. The matau is a strong symbol, representing good luck and safe travel across water.
Marsden Flower Greenstone comes from the Marsden area of the West Coast of New Zealand. The gold-coloured variegation in the piece is called "flower" and makes this type of greenstone particularly valued and distinctive.
