Fishing Hook – Circle of Life

 

The importance of Pacific Shell Hooks to the survival of the Samoan and Pacific people cannot be understated. Bait was never used in ancient times, instead the curvature and the shine of the shell hook was used to attract sea game.

 

The edges are carefully carved with Samoan Motifs and Tattoo symbols.

 

Hooks are worn as a sign of leadership, the bearer of the hook is the provider for the family or ‘aiga’ and uses his energy to ensure their continued success and livelihood.
