MOTUIHEI - Ric has used unique and visually striking Jade for this wonderful large toki!
MOTUIHEI - Slip it over your head and you'll be donning a stunning piece of wearable art.
Carved by RIC MOOR this toki is a beauty and will appeal to those of you looking for an 'edgier' pendant, a piece that catches the eye and draws attention. The quality of the workmanship and design is what you would expect from Ric.
The cord is our new Kereru Green, and can be adjusted with a couple of slip knots. MOTUIHEI is a beautiful piece of traditional jewellery and one that will last through generations.
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. The adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. They were used to carve ocean-going waka (sea canoes) and to build central meeting houses so they played a central role in traditional life of māori.
The toki is traditionally worn for strength and courage - to assist through life's challenges.
We also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
Delivery with Express Courier is included in the price.
