Bone Toki with Koru Earrings.

This design represents the Toki or Adze ("adz" in American English) which was used to carve the great canoes and also to cut and work timber for the fortresses or Pahs in which the Maori lived. 

It was such an important tool in Maori life that it became regarded as a symbol of power, authority and good character. 

Traditionally the koru is said to represent new beginnings, growth and re-generation.

We know it symbolizes the fern frond seen in New Zealand’s native bush because of the native New Zealand people, the Maori, proverb that speaks of rebirth and growth: Ka hinga atu he tete-kura – ka hara-mai he tete-kura

As one fern frond dies – one is born to take its place.

Size Approx 75 H x 20mm W.
