TIKI RING - a traditional tiki ring carved in bone.
A beautifully carved, bone Tiki ring with New Zealand Pāua Shell eyes. A unisex ring for someone you love.
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.
Tiki were traditionally highly valued and wearers were seen to possess clarity of thought, loyalty, great inner knowledge and strength of character.
The tiki is believed by some to have come from the stars, and was regarded as the 'first man'. He was (and still is) believed to have a positive influence on fertility, and to bring the wearer good luck.
Also note, we can place this ring on a cord and make a pendant for you - just let us know in the comments section at checkout.
