MED TOKI - ADZE - Kawakawa Pounamu - M841

$260.00

Beautifully coloured Kawakawa Pounamu Toki. Carved by Allan Moreton.

Traditionally Toki was used by Maori to cut and work timber for the meeting houses and carvings. Because of the determination, control and strength required to skilfully use the Toki it became a symbol of ability, power and authority. Ceremonial Toki were traditionally worn by Maori elders and Chiefs to signify leadership qualities. May this Toki bring the wearer strength, courage and inspiration on their journey in life.

Pounamu or Greenstone is regarded as a stone sacred to the gods by the Maori of New Zealand. As a Taonga -meaning treasured, and it should be worn with respect and pride. Pounamu is a gift from the heart.

Measurements:

74 mm length

45 mm width

12 mm thickness

Comes with black adjustable cord.

BEHIND POUNAMU

Pounamu is so much more than a stone. It holds Wairua (spiritual essence) through its association with the land and its beauty. Each piece lends strength and well-being to the wearer, making it a true gift from the heart. Over time, Pounamu absorbs its owners' natural oils and takes on a beautiful lustre. It is then that the stone's essence becomes one with your own and the stone has truly chosen you.

We love the Pounamu we purchased from these guys and really appreciate how they replaced the cord for us a year later.
