NZ Pakohe Argillite Small Toki Pendant (AM117)

$69.00

Beautiful NZ Argillite or Pakohe Toki. Carved by Dean Taylor.

Traditionally Toki was used by Māori 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 Māori elders and Chiefs to signify leadership qualities. May this Toki bring the wearer strength, courage and inspiration on their journey in life.

Pakohe or NZ Argillite is a sediment stone, a play of shadow and light and comes in a range of colours from black, green, grey and blues and was commonly used to make tools from. It is said to enhance the ability to see all things as sacred and creates interconnectedness between body and spirit. Strengthens the link to ones ancestors.

Measurements:

47 mm length

19 mm width

8 mm depth

Comes with an adjustable cord and Jute drawstring bag.

This will be the exact piece you will receive in the photos, there may be a slight degree of colour variation based on different computer or mobile phone screen resolutions that you are viewing from.

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!
