The Samoa Hook comes alive in a dazzling milieu of colours and Samoan Motifs showing the vibrancy of the South Pacific Flora and Fauna. This particular hook is a compound piece of wood and bone tied together with sinnet.
It is a symbol of prosperity; from this tool and mastering of its use flow sustenance and the boundless abundance of the Pacific Ocean. It is the artefact of life and its basic shape has endured millennia.
As adornment is confers on the wearer good luck and signifies the leader and provider of the family.
