Bone Toki with Engravings
Our hand carved Bone Toki featuring traditional engravings and complex traditional bindings with a hand plaited waxed braid cord and carved bone toggle. Toki also referred to as a Adz Blade.
This design represents the Adze 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. It is also the mark of the craftsman and artist bringing together head, hand and heart.
