This small shiny toki has been carved from a beautiful bright green piece of New Zealand greenstone, that has some pale colour variation and black inclusions too. A lovely flared design with traditional binding. Toki were traditionally worn by chiefs and warriors, as symbols of strength, wisdom, and authority.
This pendant was hand carved on the west coast of the South Island, New Zealand, by Jeremy.
