Toki – Pou – Tangata (Ceremonial Adze). Authentic Maori art by our carvers in Rotorua.
We have this beautiful toki in stock at the moment.
As mentioned above, a toki pou tangata is a ceremonial adze. It was held by a rangatira (Maori leader of high rank) and was a symbol of chiefly authority. While it was mainly used for ceremonial functions, it could also be used as a weapon.
This artwork is made from tulip wood (hardwood). The blade is a lovely piece of frosted dark green pounamu (greenstone).
The toki looks great on the stand that has some koru design on both sides. Beautiful artwork that will look good in your home or office.
Size: 35cm x 20cm x 5cm
- Our artist would need 6-8 weeks lead-time
