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).
This Raukaraka Toki has been mounted on a native rimu wooden stand with a brass frame holding it.
