This precious Toanga speaks of the special tools and creative technologies emerging today. Beautiful, unique and elegant in design its ready for a life with someone special and is built to survive the ages.
As part of the Matihiko Taonga collection, the Toki form was chosen to communicate the creative opportunities and new pathways available to us using CAD and 3D printing as modern tools in a digital age. Bringing with it the whakapapa of innovation and creativity, this piece is created as a contemporary heirloom representing this point in our history and designed to last long into the future.
This design of Toki is also known as a Roimata and is a slightly later adaptation of the Toki form. With its gentle curves and soft shape, the Roimata is generally considered to be a more feminine form of the Toki.
The Toki form is derived from the adze or axe head, a tool that was pivotal in the development of early Maori culture. It provided the foundation for all tools that were used to carve and reveal new forms, structures, and creations, from Waka to Whare, the Toki was the key to developing new technologies, moving a people and the culture into the future.
