JOURNEY OF OUR ANCESTORS
Carved from New Zealand Flower Jade (Pounamu)
JOURNEY OF OUR ANCESTORS are large Toki by Kerry Thompson. These are exceptional in every sense - beautifully designed and flawlessly carved, and crafted from beautiful New Zealand pounamu.
JOURNEY OF OUR ANCESTORS are a carved artwork that we think will be passed down through generations - worn and loved - a very meaningful heirloom.
We think this would make a stand out gift for someone who leads the family with integrity and pride.
The Jade Kerry has used is exquisite! A crescendo of orange and green with fragments of scattered black inclusions, all adding to the mystery and beauty of these toki!
We have made a video which shows these pieces slowly revolving - first the larger piece, then the more slender version. Take a moment to watch this, it is quite revealing.
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 ....and these are great pieces!
These beautiful Toki have Koru carved into their face - these symbolise fresh beginnings, a new start - the perfect piece for someone taking on new challenges
Traditionally, the toki is worn to provide strength and courage to assist through life's challenges, and the koru is a symbol of rebirth, growth and new beginnings.
PLEASE USE THE DROP-DOWN MENU TO SELECT THE PIECE YOU WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE - use the cord colour as your guide.
We include our 'Kia Ora' cards explaining the meaning behind both the Toki and Koru design.
Delivery to you with Express Courier is included in the price.
