This is a stunning and unique large New Zealand Jade Toki. With its glorious green colour and open fracture on the right-hand side front face, this is a real beauty.
We've named this Adze 'LOVE YOUR SCAR' - embrace your imperfections and wearing them with pride.
A stunning hand carved piece - LOVE YOUR SCAR!
Have a look at the video we have taken of this piece slowly rotating. It has a very subtle and beautiful form. The jade has been polished to a silky matte finish - this video is the very best way to see precisely what this piece looks like (although we can assure you that it's lovelier in the flesh).
Nothing more to say about this toki - we'll let the photos, and the video, do all the talking.
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.
This is a one-off piece and will make someone very happy!
We also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
