Patupaiarehe Kahurangi Toki

Patupaiarehe toki can be held in the hand to give strength when it needed or if you feel the need to pull the misty veil around themselves.

Patupaiarehe are pale-skinned and fair or red-headed supernatural beings that live in the realm between man and the gods.  Some call them the fairy folk.  Patupaiarehe live in the deep forests and mist-covered mountain tops of Aotearoa.

The patupaiarehe used the mist to cloak and veil themselves as direct sunlight is harmful to their skins.  This Kahurangi  toki holds the swirling mists in which the patupaiarehe hide, and hence it was named Patupaiarehe.

Tim has also left the kiri on the top edge of this toki, so you can see and feel the pounamu in its raw state.

With shifting mist like swirls of silvery-white, this is a strong toki. A taonga with power and poise and has been named to reflect the presence that it holds.
