NZ Greenstone Toki Earrings - 30mm.
NZ Greenstone Toki Earrings.
The Adze or Toki symbolizes strength as it represents the traditional Maori tool, whose blade had to be strong so as not to break when used.
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.
We photograph each piece but a slight colour variation may occur.
