This Toki (adze) pendant has been hand carved from New Zealand pounamu (greenstone/jade) by carver Shane Macintosh.
The Toki symbolizes strength, courage and overcoming of adversity. The Toki design is derived from the Toki Poutangata which was a very valuable carving tool and more ornately carved.
Toki Poutangata were used for ceremonial purposes by Māori chiefs. The wearer of a Toki pendant is said to be the creator or shaper of their own pathway.
