NEW ARRIVAL

Check out this beautiful contemporary toki by Rhys Hall. Rhys has carved this from lovely New Zealand kahurangi jade and beach stone. It is a wonderful piece we've named NIKAU after a native palm that grows wild here. it is the only native palm we have here in New Zealand. The green jade insert is a stylised representation of the Nikau leaf.

This is a wonderful piece carved with precision and symmetry - the quality of the craftsmanship is a hallmark of Rhys' work, and this particular piece is a great example of this.

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 will provide this pendant on an adjustable black cord. We will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
