This beautiful Carved Tiki measuring 48 inches tall, made out of solid wood, monkey pod. The image is possibly one of the finest temple-style images, presenting all of the dynamic qualities of the style and the abstraction of the headdress, hair and eyes, which in this instance are triangular, faceted elements set into the hair pattern.
Provenance is possibly from Hale-o-keawe, Honaunau, Hawaii
Manifestations of Mana are what Polynesian sculptors' desire most, and Mana is not easy to define. It is most commonly defined as "power" from within. Mana is a life energy that flows through all things and is highly individual: you have a chance to gain or lose Mana in everything you do.
This is a beautiful piece of art. These Tikis were carved with great attention to details. This Temple Image comes in Stained and Natural finishes.
