Mana in a modern world
Pounamu has always been given and worn as a sign of mana or prestige. When formed as a toki (adze-head) that meaning is amplified. This form by master carver Michael Matchitt takes on contemporary lines with a central feature - a void. He aha te ngako? What is the essence? What lies within? Only the wearer will know.
