NZ Greenstone Toki with Harakeke Detail Pendant - 60mm
NZ Greenstone Toki with Harakeke Detail Pendant.
Today when worn around the neck, the toki necklace (or pendant) is said to represent strength because of this distant association with the tribal chief and increased life force of the toki poutangata.
One of New Zealand’s most distinctive native plants, harakeke is not, botanically, a flax, but a member of the day-lily family. The name flax comes from the fact that the long fibres extracted from the leaves are used in much the same way as those in linen flax (Linum usitatissimum) are used in the northern hemisphere.
Harakeke is one of New Zealand’s most distinctive native plants. It has long, upright, often stiff leaves which can reach up to 4metres in length.
