GREEN HAVEN - a big, bold but surprisingly subtle toki carved from beautiful New Zealand greenstone. The jade is a gorgeous darker green with palish clouds scattered throughout. We have polished this to a soft matte - it will only get better and better over time as it takes on your body oils and maybe a little of your spirit. It will become a spectacular piece that we believe will become a very special part of your family.
If you move this piece around in various lights the greens flash with hints of mint and cream - this is a marvellous piece of stone which is beautifully worked in GREEN HAVEN.
A stunning and visually powerful New Zealand Jade Toki.
We have bound it with a Khaki/Black/Manuka Green Combo Cord and Khaki lashing. The cord is length adjustable.
As an adornment, the Toki, or Adze, is said to bring courage and strength in times of adversity. It is a symbol of courage and strength in times of adversity and is often worn by Maori elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.
Maori 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.
Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
We will deliver this to you with DHL Express Courier.
