Carved from New Zealand Argillite by Rueben Tipene

A spectacular piece of stone - a wonderfully strong carving!

GALAXY is a large and powerful Toki with a Matau heart center. A wonderful dark piece carved in New Zealand argillite, beautifully designed and finished!

The edges and angles bring the design to the fore - it is this attention to detail that makes this such an impressive piece!

Carved with Rueben's exceptional skill, this is a faultless carving.

GALAXY is a carved artwork made to be worn. The finish is a polished matte. A fantastic gift and a piece that will certainly stand the test of time.

We have made a video which slows this piece slowly revolving. Take a moment to watch this, it reveals the beautiful design and the precise carving.

Traditionally, the toki is worn to provide strength and courage to assist through life's challenges.

The hook:  The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life - what a lovely sentiment to gift to someone important to you.

GALAXY will make someone a fabulous companion.

This piece is provided on a plaited olive coloured adjustable cord.

We include our 'Kia Ora' cards explaining the meaning behind the Toki and Matau design.
