THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN

In stock

THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN - this stunning Toki has a beautiful pale, minty white peak that descends into a lovely deep green colour. A unique and distinct piece of New Zealand Pounamu is at the heart of this wonderful Toki.

We have added a thick plaited Black cord and bound the top of the toki with a traditional Black lashing. The Jade is polished to a bright shine.

This ia a marvellous Jade Toki carved in a traditional style from New Zealand Jade. Like the THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN the view is bright and beautiful.

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....

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.
