Tupa Tiki (Crab Tiki)

Regular price $30.00 $0.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Tupa Tiki displays the head of a Tiki as the fundamental design element in Marquesan culture in the shape of a crab "tupa".  

Tiki represents deified ancestors or sometimes gods. Tiki also means creativity, fertility, and abundance. There is some uncertainty as to whether Tiki is a god or a human being; he is often regarded as both. It symbolizes the protection against dangerous threats. Crab's pincers represent protection and they symbolize the ability to reach goals by a sideway path, going round the obstacles like waves.

Tupa Tiki was hand-carved in oceania rosewood from the Marquesan Island of Nuku Hiva and it comes with an elegant, adjustable black line.
