Tiki Paepae (Tiki on a pedestal)
Tiki Paepae was hand-carved in oceania rosewood and it displays traditional Marquesan symbols for protection.
Term “Tiki” is complex and multilayered in Marquesan culture. It generally represents deified ancestors or sometimes gods. Tiki also means virility, fertility, creativity, abundance. There is some uncertainty as to whether Tiki is a god or a human being; he is often regarded as both.
Tikis are always present at important ceremonies. Marquesans keep them inside and outside of their houses, wear them as tattoos and pendants.
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.
