Here is a beautiful Kane Tiki measuring 48 inches tall (120 cm) and made out of solid Acacia Koa ( also known as Monkey Pod Wood) wood. It has been hand polished.
The image is possibly one of the finest Kona-style images, presenting all of the dynamic qualities of the style and the abstraction of the headdress, hair and eyes, which in this instance are triangular, faceted elements set into the hair pattern. Original: Pitt-Rivers Museum
Manifestations of Mana are what Polynesian sculptors' desire most, and Mana is not easy to define. It is most commonly defined as "power" but it also means dignity, serenity. It sometimes means bravery and often implies humor and pride. But there is no evil, no cruelty in Mana.
This is a beautiful piece of art! These Tikis were carved with great attention to details. It is a substantial piece of Hawaiiana and a fine example of Polynesian art with a very POWERFUL PRESENCE! Perfect for INDOOR or OUTDOOR tropical decor.
Excellent as garden /yard art. Place this statue by you entrance to welcome your guests and to protect your home.
