Tiki Hakaiki (fully carved body)
Tiki Hakaiki (Tiki chief) was hand-carved in oceanic rosewood and it displays traditional Marquesan symbols for protection. His body is fully carved. Made on Nuku Hiva Island in the valley of Hakaui.
The term “Tiki” is complex and multilayered in Marquesan culture. It generally represents deified ancestors and a god. Tikis are always present at important ceremonies. Marquesans keep Tiki statues inside and outside of their houses, wear them as jewelry and tattoo them on their bodies.
Every Tiki is hand-carved and no two Tikis are exactly alike. They often serve to mark the boundaries of sacred or significant sites. Whether you're enhancing your home, your business, or event with a unique piece of art or hoping to bring good fortune and blessings to your settings, we offer the authentic quality and variety of Tiki that you're looking for.
