Akua Kai Kona Style Tiki | Hawaiian Carving 12"

YDA1102730N

| /


This 12 inch Akua Kai Tiki is made out of solid wood, monkey pod. The image is possibly one of the finest kona-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. 

The original Akau Kai is now featured in the Hawai'i Museum, Honolulu and is the only one of its kind. Today it is considered by experts to be the largest and finest of this class of portable image.

  • Original: Pitt-Rivers Museum
  • Tiki: Akua (God/Image/Idol) Kai (Ocean/Sea) - Tiki of the Ocean
