The Toki is a symbol of courage and strength in times of adversity, often worn by Māori elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority. The toki (adze) was a chisel tool used by the Māori people of Aotearoa (New Zealand) to carve their great canoes and carved detailing on their meeting houses. This beautiful piece of pounamu (traditional name for greenstone in New Zealand) is crafted by Kuru Pounamu, a small business creating genuine Māori art pieces in Waihau Bay, on the East Cape of New Zealand. The crafters, Dean Marjoribanks (Te Whanau-a-Apanui) and Ivana Sokolich (Ngati Tarara) only use materials from authentic New Zealand sources. Colour may vary due to the natural stone the product is created from. Size: 47mm height, Width 24mm
