Hold this stunning New Zealand Marsden Jade Toki up to the light and watch it shine! Carved from a wonderful, semi-translucent piece of New Zealand jade from the Marsden region outside of Greymouth in our South Island.
Hand carved with precision and bound with a little added finesse - the perfect gift for someone you both admire and love.
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. Traditionally, the adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. It is a symbol of authority.
This shape is derived from a chisel tool used by the Māori people of Aotearoa (New Zealand) to carve their great canoes and carved detailing on their meeting houses. It was an essential tool in their daily lives, and a good quality jade adze was a prized possession.
Take a moment to view the video - this will give you a perfect idea of the colour nuances in this beautiful piece of jade. They are very subtle but add a lot of character to this piece.
