This is a vintage style Tiki made of Acacia KOA WOOD... Not too many Tikis are made of this wood because of a price increase over the years. The Tiki God Akua Kai is the tiki of the ocean.
This is a superb wood sculpture replica with great imagination, skill and respect for the beauty and natural lines of the wood.
ORIGINAL: Pitt-Rivers Museum
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.
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.
It would be perfect for a tropical decorating theme or as a sculpture to add some drama to your tiki bar or luau. A beautiful piece of Hawaiiana and Oceanic Art. Place this impressive statue by you front door to greet your guests and to protect your home with it's POWERFUL PRESENCE.
Also a great gift idea with MUCH ALOHA...
