This is a unique one of a kind custom piece so it will be removed from our gallery permanently when sold.

In ancient times jade was very hard to get and very precious. 
It was often used to make the adze blades or toki used to carve wood etc. 
When the toki blade broke or wore down it was far too special to be thrown away so they were often carved into other special artifacts such as Tiki. 

This stunning piece tells the story of that transition from a sacred tool to a special personal talisman.

The Tiki is a very ancient symbol representing the first man of the world and is respected as the bringer of all knowledge.
The wearer of a Tiki possesses clarity of thought, loyalty, great inner knowledge and strength of character. The Tiki is also regarded as a good luck charm
