CORNERSTONE - a large and striking toki carved for us by Darren Hill. This is a real humdinger, carved from awesome New Zealand flower jade. The colour and structure of the jade is just delightful - a really strong shape which is softened a little by the colours in this wonderful stone.
This is a toki for you if you want something that is brave in design and bold in colour.
Cornerstone is a pale blue/green New Zealand flower jade, and is bound in a soft brown. The finish is a traditional burnished matte.
Take a moment to view the video - this shows the piece slowly rotating and will give you a good look at the shape, the colour of the stone and the quality of the carving.
The toki or adze was an important tool for the polynesian people, used to build meeting houses and shape their sea-going canoes. It has been traditionally worn to give strength and courage to the wearer.
Provided on an adjustable plaited cord in Brown and your package will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
