A stunning and visually powerful New Zealand Flower Jade Toki.
This piece has been polished to a dull matte - perfect for the stone. It highlights the changes in structure and colour in the stone - this really is a magnificent, large toki.
Take a second to watch the brief video that we have taken of this piece slowly revolving - a great way to get an accurate appreciation of the colour through the jade and the way the toki is carved and falls on the cord.
We named this piece THE HILLS - it reminds us of the early morning light defining the shape of hill country in rural New Zealand - this is a visually strong pendant, perfect if you're after something large and powerful.
We have bound THE HILLS with a four-plaited cord in our Kalahari colour with Manuka Green 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.
We will deliver this to you with DHL Express Courier.
