$180.00

Beautifully coloured Douglas Creek 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.

I was blown away by the service, quality and affordability. Louise was very helpful and accommodating and Dean is a great carver, clearly plenty of skill and pride goes into his work. Would highly recommend!
