A Hei Pekapeka is a traditional Maori carving that is worn as a symbol of status and cultural identity. The pendant is typically carved from a single piece of bone or pounamu (also known as greenstone), and is shaped into a stylized bat or bird form. The pendant may be adorned with intricate designs and patterns, and may also be inlaid with other materials such as shell or ivory. In Maori culture, the Pekapeka pendant is often given as a gift to mark important life events or to show respect and appreciation for someone. It is also often worn as a symbol of strength, courage, and determination.
