DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Fish hooks symbolize wealth and social status in a place where, with such a generous ocean, those who owned a fish hook were not to suffer from famine.

There´s also a second less physical meaning to them: knowledge, as they symbolize catching and retaining ideas the same way as they do with fish.

This traditional kirituhi Maori style fish hook tattoo was prepared for Amy, from Kia Toa.
