Sterling Silver Raukaraka Hei Toki - Pounamu Flower Adze

Sands Carving Studio


In the ancient Māori world, the Toki or adze was a vital tool in everyday life. Toki have come to represent the strength and skill of an individual, and the acquisition of knowledge and mana (prestige). 

It is hung by an adjustable hand-plaited cord and measures 45 x 26 x 3mm.

This piece was hand-carved by Raymond Stokes.
