Bone Toki with Pāua and Stain

Size (mm): 130 L x 35 W (bone part only)

This bone carving is a beautiful piece of Māori jewelry, with Pāua shell accents and a brown stain on the left side to add contrast and detail. This Māori necklace comes with a black wax cord. The binding is tight, which is paramount for a long-lasting Toki. The height that the pendant hangs at can be adjusted using the sliding knots. Each carving is supplied loose in a cellophane bag. Each piece is individually carved so slight variations can occur.

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.
