The toki, also known as a adze, is a symbol of strength, courage, and authority in Maori culture. It is traditionally a tool used for carving wood, and as such it represents the ability to shape and create. The toki is also seen as a symbol of determination and perseverance, as it takes a great deal of skill and effort to create a well-crafted adze. In Maori art and jewelry, the toki is often depicted with intricate designs and symbols that hold additional cultural significance.
