Hei toki
The 'hei toki' represents strength, authority and mana. In the early days the toki (adze) was used as a tool. Nowadays it is a ceremonial treasure - taonga representing courage and strength in hard times. The toki represents great power and the toki were often gifted to warriors and chiefs. 

Tiki
The tiki is one of New Zealand's most recognised carved design. Carved as a human form. The tiki is a symbol of good luck, strength and fertility.
