Tiny Toki – Iti Rawa
This tiny toki is just the cutest little toki ever. At only 54mm long and being lightweight this is the perfect taonga gift for any age. It will tuck down into your t-shirt when you are doing something physical but can also stand out with strength and dignity when required. My kids all wear small pieces like this and I often borrow them when I need something delicate and striking for a night out. As an added bonus, you can see in the photos that when you hold this piece up to the light it will glow a fantastic emerald green. Iti rawa would be a great gift for any age, from a newborn baby to your grandad.
⭐️Length 54mm x 35mm
⭐️As always, this is a one-of-a-kind taonga by Timoti so you can be assured your taonga is as unique as you are.
The Toki was one of the most important tool for Māori and were used for any number of everyday jobs such as cutting down trees, carving out waka, digging the ground, Moa hunting and food preparations. Because the toki had to be strong to endure the cutting and scraping motions of its use it became a symbol of strength(particularity in time of adversity), courage and fortitude. Pounamu toki were also worn by elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.
