A Knockout Piece!! Large, beautifully bound, lovely, unique jade - this is a real ace.
A stunning and visually powerful New Zealand Jade Toki. This is a large Toki, beautifully carved and when gifted represents respect and honour. This has been polished to a soft sheen, which promotes the jade's particular character. Check out the colour variations and the striking spotted dark inclusions - it looks a little like the flash of a fish!
We have bound this with a traditional lashing and with a hand-plaited cord which 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.
