TAHA WAIRUA - Spiritual well-being
Check out the colours in the stone! The toki is the perfect design for this stone - it is bold and earthy and has a solid practical feel to it.
The colouring in this piece is remarkable - lots of green tones and a splash of red. It varies considerably from front to back, so TAHA WAIRUA can be worn either side. Ric has made a chunky, solid and a really bold piece here - if you like lots of jade this will be the piece for you.
We have suspended this from a 4-plait brown cord which can be adjusted with a couple of slip knots. TAHA WAIRUA is a beautiful piece of traditional jewellery, that will last for ever!
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.
