Manifestations of Mana are what Polynesian sculptors’ desire most, and Mana is not easy to define. It is most commonly defined as “power” but it also means dignity, serenity. It sometimes means bravery and often implies humor and pride. But there is no evil, no cruelty in Mana.

This is a beautiful piece of art! These Tikis were carved with great attention to details. Great for any collector.
