TREELINE - This piece reminds us of the subtle colour changes you really only see on a treelike. All you hikers and outdoors people will know what that looks like for sure!
We have plaited an Olive and Tan Cord and bound the top of the toki with our Kalahari Tan cord. The Jade is polished to a soft shine.
This ia a marvellous Jade Toki carved in a traditional style from New Zealand Jade.
If you like this piece please take a moment to watch the brief video, this reveals the shape and colours through the stone quite clearly.
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.
We will deliver this to you with DHL Express Courier and include our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
