NZ PACIFIC TOKI

In stock

An original 'NZ Pacific' Toki!

This is a lovely bone carving with some special detail. A traditional Toki with our beautiful hand plaited cord and binding. This piece has our logo handcarved in relief into the front face - it represents New Zealand's mountains and our surrounding oceans.

A symbol of courage and strength in times of adversity, toki were worn by Māori elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.

Traditionally people from the Pacific used the toki to build fortresses and waka - ocean going canoes. It is a symbol of authority and power and the wearer is believed to be a person of good character.

Māori 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. 

PLEASE USE THE DROP DOWN MENU TO SELECT THE CORD AND BINDING COLOUR THAT YOU WOULD LIKE.

We will deliver this to you with DHL Express Courier and will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards which explain the meaning behind the Toki design.
