Here is a beautiful Tiki Akua Kai measuring 12 inches tall (30 cm) and made out of solid monkey pod wood. 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
* Tiki: akua Kai Kona style

* 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
This hand carved tiki totem has been waxed to give a nice antique finish. Great Tiki gift idea, trophy ideas or corporate gifts!
Place this impressive statue by you front door to greet your guests and to protect your home with it's POWERFUL PRESENCE.
