Pendant: Manō (Shark)

Product Description

Bone carving came to Hawaiʻi with the first Polynesian settlers. Before contact with the west in the late 1700s, and the discovery of metal, all fishhooks were made of bone, as were many adornments.  The introduction of cattle to Hawaiʻi provided a new source of bone. Traditionally, bone pendants are believed to absorb a person’s life force over time, along with the body oils that will yellow the pendant over the years. This makes them especially valuable heirlooms. These pendants are carved in the shapes of the animals of the sea, the weapons of war, and the important Polynesian fishhook. 

Manō

Some Hawaiian families revere sharks as family guardians, and do not necessarily fear them. However, sharks are understood as the chiefs of their ocean domain.

*Handcarved piece may look slightly different than pictured.*
