GREENER DAYS

GREENER DAYS - a gorgeous, small toki in a light, textured New Zealand Greenstone.

We are really delighted with this beautiful, small toki. This particular piece of stone has a lovely variability in its structure with a multitude of tiny black inclusions scattered through the stone. Small but very fine!

If you like this piece please take a moment to watch the brief video, this reveals the shape and variability in 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.

Shipping is included in the price.

We will include our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
