Dragon - Hei Matau Blend

Steve T

Recommended Posts

Well I've just finished a commission work for a friend who wanted something for her son on his Graduation next month,


They are big into martial arts and dragons but also like the symbols from the Maori styles so blended a relatively traditional Hei Matau (fishhook) shape and overlayed with a dragon. It's giraffe bone and I love the transition of the colours as you get deeper into the bone from white at the surface to a honey amber in the middle.


It still needs the cord put on and it'll be a 4 thread hemp plait.


Still getting the hang of the hand tools but certainly liking the sharper lines and angles I can get.
