NZ GREENSTONE MEDIUM TIKI TOKI (D847) KAWAKAWA POUNAMU

$520.00

Beautifully coloured Kawakawa Pounamu Tiki styled 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.

Hei Tiki is a symbol of fertility and good luck. It is also said to bring the wearer strength of character, allowing one to be loyal, clear headed and perceptive. The Tiki will often be depicted with its tongue poking out for protection.

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.

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