UNEARTHED - the perfect name for a Toki that displays a beautiful array of forest greens, earthy browns, subtle curves and hints of the land it came from. Slip it over your head and you'll be donning a stunning piece of wearable art.
UNEARTHED is carved from a lovely piece of local New Zealand Flower Jade. This toki shows the characteristics of a Ric Moor work - a lovely piece of stone, simply and beautifully carved, and finished in a soft, natural matte.
UNEARTHED is suspended from a fine 4-plait beige cord which can be adjusted with a couple of slip knots and has a beige binding.
UNEARTHED is a beautiful piece of traditional jewellery.
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. They were used to carve ocean-going waka (sea canoes) and to build central meeting houses so they played a central role in traditional life of māori.
The toki is traditionally worn for strength and courage - to assist through life's challenges.
We also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
