Tiki Mata Hoata necklace

This playful piece of jewelry displays the fundamental design element in Marquesan culture – Mata Tiki (the eye of a Tiki). Tiki represents etua (god) deified ancestors whose supernatural powers sustain and protect the community – and the eyes were the most supernaturally powerful element of the face.

Mata Hoata was hand-carved out of "tou" tree (oceania walnutfrom the Marquesan Island of Nuku Hiva and it comes with an elegant, adjustable black line.
