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 toki is carved from Kokopu Pounamu. The spots on the stone resemble the patterns on the Kokopu (speckled trout).
It is hung by a black adjustable hand platted cord.
This piece measures 70 x 30x 2mm
