Named LIFELINE for those we call upon when we need them most. Like the structures in this stone, from time to time we we can always use support that is solid and reliable. A beautiful deep mottled green Pounamu.
This ia a marvellous, large Jade Toki carved in a traditional style from New Zealand Jade. A strong piece, not flashy but really solid and substantial - a piece to own and wear with pride.
We bind this with a traditional lashing, the cord is length adjustable.
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.
