SAPIENT - to possess, or express, great wisdom

 A big bold toki carved from a beautiful, earthy green New Zealand jade. Polished to a matte sheen and beautifully bound with a four plait khaki green and tan cord, we've topped SAPIENT off with a perfectly lashed, khaki green binding!

This is a large and solid piece, carved to represent the adze - it is a very fitting representation and a great tribute to a tool that played a central role in survival. 

This is a pendant that will be with you for a lifetime!

SAPIENT has been polished to a soft sheen - this finish allows the subtle changes in the stone to appear.

This stone reveals a back story for all to see - fractures and scars on the front and back that we have left in the stone as recognition of the scars a life well lived can leave. You can contribute to its future legend!

As an adornment, the Toki, or Adze, is said to bring courage and strength in times of adversity. It is a symbol of courage and strength in times of adversity and is often worn by Maori elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.

Maori believe that carvings carry the spirit of those who wear them, becoming an important family Taonga (treasure) passed on to future generations of the family as an heirloom.

Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.

Shipping is included in the price.
