Wow!! This is quite the work of art. An absolute knockout piece crafted for us by Yannis Petzold. Everything about this piece is quite remarkable - the selection of material, the subtle shape of the toki, the cord design and the sublime craftsmanship - a real work of art!
The toki is carved from a recycled piece of African Ebony - a silky smooth, deep black chocolate coloured wood that is beautifully finished.
The round inlay is (from bottom to top): Chinese Glowing Stone, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Afghani Lapis Lazuli. These are each cased in a small circle of brass.
The silver 'star' inlays represent a genealogical pathway:
- 7 - Maternal Grandmother
- 5 - Paternal Grandmother
- 3 - Mother
- 2 - Father
The neck cord is in its own right a little work of art! A hand plaited, spiralled cord in black that is a fixed length with a Paua Shell Toggle.
The different stones used in this piece are absolutely beautiful. Bright wonderful colours that grab your attention.
SLEEPING BEAUTY is a very cool piece. It has clean lines, is silky smooth and is exquisitely hand made from a fantastic New Zealand artist. He has carved this with the flair that you would expect to find in his work - and his craftsmanship is flawless.
If you like the look of it, take a moment to watch the brief video we have made of it slowly revolving. This reveals the quality of the carving and the beauty of this pendant - careful though, once you've looked you might have to snap it up!
We will ship this stunning Toki in one of our wooden boxes with our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
