Toki/Adze (Carved)

Toki/Adze (Carved)

Masterfully crafted - hand carved and bound in a traditional manner with a waxed braid cord and handcarved wooden toggle.


Every taonga has a special meaning or story behind its design. This toki (adze) represents courage, strength, determination and authority, especially in the face of adversity. The carved waves embrace the idea of change and provide continuity throughout that change. This toki will reflect the artistic and creative side of the wearer. It is believed that a taonga, when worn with respect or given and received with love, takes on part of the spirit of those who wear or handle it. In this way it becomes a link between friends and family, spanning time and distance.
