COROMANDEL - if you've ever travelled around this spectacular peninsula you'll appreciate it's natural beauty - the bush and the beaches.
This toki reminds us of the dramatic contrast between native bush and beach that you find in this little slice of heaven. Natural colour nuances that are reflected in this gorgeous piece of pounamu.
We have hand plaited a Khaki/Burnt Gold cord and bound the top of the toki with our Khaki cord. The Jade is polished to a soft shine.
This ia a marvellous Jade Toki carved in a traditional style from New Zealand Jade. Like the COROMANDEL it is beautiful.
If you like the look of this piece, please take a moment to watch the brief video, this reveals the toki slowly revolving and will give you a very clear idea of the shape and the glorious colours in the stone.
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.
