Temple God Tiki | Hawaiian Museum Replica 20"

Please choose: Natural or Stained Finishes

God Temple Tiki is a beautiful Image measuring 20″, 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: the original is undetermined, 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” 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.
