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 Inanga Pounamu which is named after the NZ native freshwater fish, whitebait.
It is hung by a tan adjustable hand platted cord.
This piece measures 67 x 18 x 5mm
