The History of Māori Greenstone Toki
Toki blades were often fastened to sculpted wooden shafts to be used by the skilled carvers, craftsman to create beautiful works of art, wakas and buildings.
- Māori designs have their own magic that can enhance the life spirit of the article or individual it embellishes when attached to them.
- In today’s world, the Toki pendant in NZ represents strength, courage and leadership.
- We offer a range of exceptional Greenstone or Pounamu Toki pendants, earrings for you to choose from, treasure, and wear with respect and pride.
Our Pounamu pieces are beautiful yet represent more than art. They create a compelling link with the ancestors and Papatuanuku (Mother Earth).
