A large Toki carved from New Zealand Flower Jade (Pounamu).
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. The adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful ....and this is a good one!
This shape is derived from a chisel tool used by the Māori people of Aotearoa (New Zealand) to carve their great canoes and the detailing on their meeting houses. It was an essential tool in their daily lives, and a good quality jade adze was a prized possession.
This beautiful Toki has been carved from a lovely piece of flower jade. We have bound it with a hand-plaited, dark brown cord which is length adjustable.
Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
