This Medium Engraved Lashed Toki with an engraved blade edge is lashed with a fully adjustable black waxed cord & this carving has been completed with a polished finish
Carved from NZ Pounamu this type of stone comes from the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. It also can be known as ‘flower jade’ – this is generally the part of the stone closest to the outside that is showing the greatest degree of inclusion and oxidation. This results in gorgeous colors – golds, reddish browns and a wide array of greens
This Toki (Adze) was an important Maori implement. In bone or stone, it was traditionally worn by Maori elders, as it represented power, wisdom, authority, strength, control, determination and focus.
