A stunning traditional Maori style Toki Poutangata with a bound flower jade blade, a  carved Kokopu jade handle and Paua shell inlays by Nick Spicer Balme.   
It sits gently on a wooden base.   

Size:    
It stands 275mm (10.8 Inches) tall.    

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

The Toki Poutangata is a ceremonial adze used to make the first cuts when carving a sacred sculpture for a meeting house or felling a great tree used to carve a special Waka or great canoe.    
It is a symbol of authority and leadership within the tribe so was only carried by the chiefs and other very important members of a tribe so they became very sacred Taonga as they were passed down the generations.
