ROGUE - a large Toki that displays a beautiful array of earthy greens and subtle curves. The colouring varies considerably from top to bottom - minty greens through a deeper coloured celadon green towards the bottom of the blade. Slip it over your head and you'll be donning a stunning piece of wearable art.
ROGUE is carved from a lovely piece of local New Zealand Jade. The quality of the workmanship and design is outstanding - this is a large piece you will want to wear all the time. Ric has suspended this from a 4-plait black cord which can be adjusted with a couple of slip knots and a black binding. ROGUE is a beautiful piece of traditional art and one that will be worn, and 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.
