RIVER OF LIFE
This is an exceptional piece! It has everything you would expect and wish for in a fine toki. The jade is outstanding. It is a Raukaraka stone - colourful and sinewy, with a fantastic and very visual structure and, to top it off, RIVER OF LIFE has a wonderful feel in the hand.
RIVER OF LIFE - a large and visually powerful toki! Slip it over your head and you'll be donning a stunning piece of wearable art.
Carved by RIC MOOR this toki is a beauty and will appeal to those of you looking for a larger, weighty pendant. The quality of the workmanship and design is what you would expect from Ric.
The cord is a 4-plait black which can be adjusted with a couple of slip knots.
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.
Delivery with Express Courier is included in the price.
