A Gift for Someone Special
Hooks were given to persons of stature and status in the community. They were seen as leaders and to receive a Master Hook was both a blessing and an honour.
Hook shapes and varieties all served a purpose. The carved Patterns emphasise the growth and productivity which stems from the hook as a tool. A symbol of true Samoan and Pacific ingenuity.
