An original 'NZ Pacific' Toki!
We've carved these wonderful Toki from Bone and have stained them with our home made tea dye - this gives the pendant an antique look... what's not to love?!
This is a lovely bone carving with some beautiful detail and depth to it. A traditional Toki with our beautiful logo. This piece represents New Zealand's mountains and our surrounding oceans - and underpins our 'Gifts from the Land' ethos!
A symbol of courage and strength in times of adversity, toki were worn by Māori elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.
Traditionally people from the Pacific used the toki to build fortresses and waka - ocean going canoes. It is a symbol of authority and power and the wearer is believed to be a person of good character.
Māori believe that carvings carry the spirit of those who wear them, becoming an important family Taonga (treasure) passed on to future generations of the family as an heirloom.
