Kouèva (Warrior's hanger)

Regular price $190.00 $0.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

"Kouèva" is the name of the Marquesan warrior's hanger used on the tribal enemies in the past.  It represents one of the strongest historical elements of this fascinating culture. 

Hand-carved and adorned with two crowned skulls and the eyes of a Tiki, it was carved in a local oceania rosewood - by Tangy. Tiki represents etua (god) deified ancestors whose supernatural powers sustain and protect the community. The crowned skull is the representation of death and mortality and it serves as a warning to enemies of the tribe.

Koueva is a unique work of art and an excellent storytelling decoration.
