Tiki Niho

Tiki Niho is one of our most popular pendants. This one was carved in cow bone and it combines tiki as the fundamental design element in Marquesan culture with the teeth of a wild boar that are considered a valuable possession. (Tiki Niho translates into Tiki's tooth in the Marquesan language.)

The placement of the teeth around the neck is considered paramount in protecting the most vulnerable part of the body from injury and it combines the properties of both an amulet and a talisman into one piece.
