TAHA TINANA - Physical well-being

This is a wonderful large toki - a gorgeous piece of jade that looks great and feels great! We have named this TAHA TINANA because, for us, the connection with the stone and the design contribute to a sense of taking a stronger control over your destiny. 

This Toki is beautifully bound and carved. Ric has utilised the Jade to its' best effect using the colours and shape to make a statement. A large and visually striking piece of art to wear!

The colouring varies considerably from front to back so you have a pendant that looks fabulous whichever side you choose to wear it. Slip it over your head and you'll be donning a stunning piece of wearable art.

TAHA TINANA is carved from New Zealand Jade. The quality of the workmanship and design is outstanding - this is a piece you will want to wear all the time.

We have suspended this from a 4-plait beige cord which can be adjusted with a couple of slip knots. TAHA TINANA 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.
