Heru bone carving - Maori hair comb.

The Maori heru is a traditional ornamental hair comb. Our carver created only a couple of these heru pendants. The heru were usually carved from wood or whale bone. Also the men would wear the heru for their long hair and tie the hair into top knots. The heru also indicated the ranking of the wearer.
