Item specifics

New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item (including handmade items). See the seller's listing ... Read moreabout the condition


This is a Hammerhead shark pendant which I designed, cut & shaped out of real cow bone. The hammerhead, or Mano Kihikihi is a guardian type of symbol in Hawaiian culture.

In Hawaiian mythology, the people believed in ancestral deities called nā ʻaumākua which would appear in the form of animals such as sharks, turtles, or even geckos. Believed to be deified ancestors, the appearance of an animal believed to be one's nā ʻaumākua was often believed to be an omen, good or bad. There are also many stories of nā ʻaumākua (in animal form) intervening to save their descendants from harm. It was also extremely bad luck to harm a manifested ʻaumakua. 

I carved this pendant for protection against evil or danger.

The pendant measures 2 1/8"(55mm)L x 1"(25mm)W x 1/4"(7mm)thick.

Be the envy of your friends by owning this original piece of art which is  designed and HAND CARVED by myself.

In Polynesian tradition, when pendants are worn on the skin, it changes color as your natural oils are absorbed. This symbolized that the spirit of the person was inhabiting the pendant. When someone gives a pendant to someone else, it is the custom that they wear it for a time so that part of their spirit is given as well.

The pendant is lashed onto a durable,yet stunningly beautiful 21"(53cm)L x 4/16"(5mm)D 4 plait round braided, lightbrown colored nylon cord. Each plait has a test breaking strength of 100lbs(45.36kg) which means this necklace can handle about 400lbs(181kg) of force. The necklace cord has a toggle & loop, where the toggle is carved of the same material as the pendant.(email me for pics including necklace cord)

This pendant is an original piece of art which has been hand carved, rubbed & polished by myself from real 100% beef bone. I take extra care & pride in the work that I do to ensure great quality.

However, if you are unhappy with the quality I will refund "purchase" price minus $5 for processing & re-listing fee after returned item has been
received by me.

If you do not like what you see in my other items then send me a question & I'll see if I can fulfill your custom request. I work with cow bones & fossil ivory & fossilized bones. I also work with exotic Hawaiian woods such as curly Koa
(Acacia koa), Milo(Thespesia populnea) & Haole kou(Cordia sebestena).
