Manifestations of Mana are what Polynesian sculptors desire most in their carvings but it is not easy to define. It is most commonly defined as "power" but it also means dignity and serenity. It sometimes means bravery and often implies humor and pride. There is no evil, no cruelty in Mana.
This tiki is perfect for indoor or outdoor use. It is a beautiful piece of Hawaiiana and a fine example of Oceanic Art. It would very much appeal to the tiki collector who is interested in Polynesian Culture and Oceanic Art.
Also a great gift idea with MUCH ALOHA!
