THE NATURE OF NIGHT - with a khaki green and maui navy blue cord and binding, this Toki reflects the lovely contrast of nature at night... evergreen gently lit by a blanket of stars - subtle but striking.
THE NATURE OF NIGHT is a Pounamu Toki to be worn and treasured, a reminder that even in the darkest hours we can shine bright.
This ia a marvellous Jade Toki carved in a traditional style from New Zealand Jade. Like the THE NATURE OF NIGHT it is mysterious, milky green coloured stone, lush and beautiful. The Jade is polished to a soft shine.
If you like the look of this piece, please take a moment to watch the brief video, this reveals the toki slowly revolving and will give you a very clear idea of the shape and the glorious colours in the stone.
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. Traditionally, the adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. It is a symbol of authority.
This shape is derived from a chisel tool used by the Māori people of Aotearoa (New Zealand) to carve their great canoes and carved detailing on their meeting houses. It was an essential tool in their daily lives, and a good quality jade adze was a prized possession.
We will deliver this to you with DHL Express Courier and include our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
