SAGE SEASON - a big bold toki carved from a beautiful, pale Inanga jade.
This is a large and solid piece, carved to represent the adze - it is a very fitting representation and a great tribute to this significant tool. This will be with you for a lifetime!
SAGE SEASON has been polished to a soft sheen - this finish allows the subtle changes in the stone to appear. This piece wears its back story for all to see - you can contribute to its future legend!
SAGE SEASON is provided with a striking Khaki and Silver Grey Cord with Silver Binding. 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.
Shipping is included in the price.
