Hand carved from natural bone with Pāua Shell eyes, this Tiki is sure to bring you GOOD FORTUNE.
Another hand carved work of art from Yuri Terenyi! We have a small collection of bone Hei-Tiki carved for us by Yuri - unique pieces carved with a great sense of the material used and the subject. The tiki is a difficult design to carve and Yuri delivers works of art with his unique and modern design.
A little about the design...
Hei-Tiki: The tiki is a well recognised symbol in Maori culture, but also has historical roots in Hawaiian and wider Polynesian cultures. It is believed to symbolise fertility, and was often worn by women as a fertilising symbol. Its form is believed to represent a human embryo, often carved with the hands placed on the loins in what is believed to be a direct reference to fertility.
